Huawei Opens Cybersecurity Center in South China to Share Best Practices

As China’s top leaders discuss a draft law that would beef up data protections, companies are hurrying to show they have what it takes.

The latest to do so is Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., which on Wednesday opened its largest cybersecurity and transparency center in the southern Chinese city of Dongguan.

The 20,000-square-meter complex aims to help cybersecurity industry stakeholders share their expertise in cyber governance and work on technical solutions, Huawei said in a statement.

The center, which will employ more than 200 engineers, will be open to regulators, independent third-party testing organizations, and standards bodies, the technology giant added.

“Cybersecurity is more important than ever,” said Ken Hu, Huawei’s rotating chairman, at the facility’s opening ceremony. “As an industry, we need to work together, share best practices, and build our collective capabilities in governance, standards, technology and verification.”

The project is Huawei’s seventh “transparency center” and the first it has set up in China. The controversial company built the previous facilities amid scrutiny from foreign regulations over the security of its products.

Beijing’s top brass are meeting this week to discuss proposed new rules on how personal data is collected, processed and stored, as the country looks to further curb the power of its tech titans.

One draft provision would penalize Chinese firms that hand over domestically stored information to foreign law enforcement and judicial agencies.
