Huawei renders cyber security training to communications authority

Huawei Ethiopia has provided Ethiopian Communications Authority (ECA) with a three-day cyber security training, with Huawei’s top cyber security experts leading the training.
The Ethiopian Communications Authority Director General, Balcha Reba, attended the opening of the training and in his opening remarks appreciated and acknowledged Huawei’s efforts into building a digital Ethiopia. “A security issue is not something provided by an external body to us, it is a system and a strategy we have to develop internally. It is not only a tactical or technological input; it is also policy and strategy as well. So, all the leaders as well as the vendors, the industry all together needs to work on accountability,” remarked the communications authority head.
He also added that when discussing cyber technology, it is important to understand the; who, how, and what. He underlined that it is a must to understand who the hackers are that affect our systems by stealing data, how viruses work, and which components of our software and systems must function effectively to safeguard our systems. “Therefore, such trainings are beneficial in learning more about cyber security issues and acting accordingly,” Balcha stated.
CEO of Huawei Ethiopia, Chen Mingliang, expressed his gratitude and respect to the Ethiopian Communications Authority for the efforts made to coordinate and to build a better-connected Ethiopia and for the endeavors that makes Ethiopia to enter the 5G era.He also emphasized that we live in a highly interconnected world, where the physical and digital worlds are increasingly converging, and the network boundaries are blurring.
Cyber security and privacy protection are increasingly important. And Huawei has established 7 cyber security transparency centers around the world, including 2 global centers located in Brussels and Dongguan (China), with 3,000 employees working full-time on cyber security Research and Development (R&D). Each year, and about 5% of its R&D budget are spent on cyber security and privacy protection related to R&D. By the end of 2020, Huawei held more than 100,000 active patents across over 40,000 families, among which 2,963 are related to cyber security and privacy protection.
The training covered global cyber security challenges and analysis, introduction to cyber security governance standards, introduction to Huawei’s end-to-end cyber security assurance system, 5G security technologies based on 5G security considerations, and a virtual tour exhibition in the Cyber Security and Privacy Protection Transparency Exhibition Hall.
The public relations director of Huawei Ethiopia, Ye Liming, during the final day session, said “With the knowledge you learnt these days, I believe that all of you will put what you learnt into practice and be devoted into digital Ethiopia building.”
The training took place from July 25 to July 27, 2022 and was attended by 20 experts.
