Huawei says it welcomes US President Barack Obama’s cybersecurity executive order. The company, which has recently been named a threat to the national security of the United States, says the initiatives proposed in the new policy are in line with its own vision on information sharing and collaboration.
Huawei representatives say they support the order that aims at enhancing the resilience of critical infrastructures while promoting civil liberties, privacy, security and business confidentiality.
“The effort in the U.S. will provide the public and private sector with a call to action for both enhanced information sharing and the development of standards to assist the critical infrastructure companies in protecting themselves,” stated Huawei Global Security Officer John Suffolk.
“These efforts move beyond discourse and should result in concrete steps to tackle security issues The time has come to stop talking about the threat, stop talking about the challenges and begin to act, which is what this Executive Order represents,” Suffolk added.
This announcement represents just a small part of Huawei’s efforts to clear its reputation.
