Cybersecurity Week in Shanghai to award best minds

By CAO YIN | chinadaily.com.cn | Updated: 2017-09-08 17:30

The annual Cybersecurity Week, an activity aimed at raising awareness about knowledge and policies related to cybersecurity, will be held in Shanghai on Sept 16, China's top internet watchdog said on Friday.

Organized by multiple authorities, including the Cyberspace Administration of China, the Ministry of Education and Bank of China, this will be the third time the activity is held in the country. The first two were respectively held in Beijing and Wuhan, Hubei province.

This time, the activity will focus on the enforcement of the Cybersecurity Law, which came into effect on June 1, as well as protection of personal information, a hot topic especially after an 18-year-old student in Shandong province died of cardiac arrest after being cheated out of her tuition fees last year. The activity will run until Sept 24.

Jiang Xun, organizer of the activity from Shanghai, said many internet and technology giants, such as Alibaba and Qihoo 360, will also attend the event, where they will introduce their new security products and their efforts against online attacks.

"The security products will be displayed during an exhibition, and everyone can visit the activity for free," he said.

A summit on cybersecurity technology will also be held, with several foreign guests from the United States, France and South Korea taking part, according to him.

"We'll hold forums on different topics, such as mobile networking and big data protection, and provide visitors knowledge about different aspects of online security. For example, we'll teach and popularize the Cybersecurity Law and online security-related tips in schools and communities."

In addition, to encourage cybersecurity talents, including teachers and enterprises, the activity will award the best, said Zhao Zeliang, director of the administration's cybersecurity coordination bureau.

"After all, the key to improving cybersecurity is to educate more talents, asking them to further study cybersecurity technologies," he added.
