The ceremony was attended by 30 industry representatives from BT, Everything Everywhere, HMG, O2 and Vodafone. John Suffolk, UK Government CIO & Senior Information Risk Owner opened the centre together with Ken Hu, SVP of Huawei and Chairman of Huawei’s Global Network Security Committee.

Cyber security is a critically important issue facing the telecommunications industry today. With the rise of IP-based telecoms networks, increased business integration and the proliferation of smart devices, telecoms networks are becoming increasingly open, integrated, and vulnerable to security threats. Huawei, as a company is focused on enhancing the reliability and security of telecoms networks, and is working to build and implement a state-of-the-art, end-to-end cyber security assurance system that will further protect equipment and network operations, based on industry best practices and international standards.
