Huawei's Soldani adds cyber security to duties

By

Huawei Australia has expanded the role of its chief technology officer David Soldani by adding the duties of cyber security officer.

The company's previous cyber security officer, Malcolm Shore, is retiring.

"We thank Malcolm Shore very much for the contribution he has made whilst working with us and wish him all the very best for his retirement – he has had a remarkable career spanning the UK, New Zealand and Australia," said Huawei Australia chairman John Lord.

"We look forward to David Soldani taking on an expanded role as Chief Technology and Cyber Security Officer and helping us deliver our innovative technology in a safe and secure manner by working with our partners and governments."

Soldani joined Huawei Australia as CTO in 2018.

He previously worked for various vendors in Europe, with roles including head of 5G technology at Nokia and head of Huawei's Central Research Institute in Germany.

Soldani is also an adjunct professor at the University of New South Wales, and was previously a visiting professor at the University of Surrey.

He holds a DSc in technology and an MSc in engineering, and has published or presented numerous international papers, contributed to the publication of many books, the development of 3GPP standards and filed several international patents.

"Huawei has a 15-year operating history here in Australia with no major cyber security breaches and I look forward to helping to maintain that record in my expanded role," said Soldani.
