Huawei Opens Cybersecurity Transparency Center in Brussels to Step Up Soft Power

(Yicai Global) March 6 -- Chinese telecoms giant Huawei Technologies has set up a cybersecurity bureau in the capital city of the European Union's decision-making, seeking to ensure that its code is safe. 

Huawei's overseas partners can examine Huawei's information technology security solutions at the Cybersecurity Transparency Center, which opened in Brussels, Belgium, yesterday, state-owned Xinhua News Agency reported.

The bureau shares the Shenzhen-based firm's safety protocols involving fifth-generation mobile network, the Internet of Things, and cloud computing, as well as provides product testing for clients. 

Huawei fully understands the cybersecurity concerns that people have in the digital world, Deputy Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Ken Hu said at the opening ceremony. "I believe that good solutions to solve the issue start from mutual understanding, which is the purpose we set up the transparency centre here today."

Huawei has pledged to closely cooperate with European regulators and corporations to establish trust systems based on objective facts and verifications, Hu said, speaking about the EU's General Data Protection Regulation that has tightened rules for user data privacy. 

Companies that violate the law will be fined with EUR20 million (USD22.6 million) or an amount that equals to four percent of the firm's annual revenue coming from the EU.
