HEFEI -- The 2022 China Cybersecurity Week kicked off Monday in Hefei, capital of East China's Anhui province.

The event, which will last until Sept 11, will consist of both online and offline activities held across the country.

This year's Cybersecurity Week theme emphasizes that a secure cyberspace environment serves and relies on the people.

More than 60 companies and organizations are participating in a cybersecurity-themed expo covering an area of about 20,000 square meters. Some auto companies have been invited to the expo for the first time to help raise public awareness of vehicle data security through on-site demonstrations.

Nine forums are scheduled during the week, focusing on different topics such as cybersecurity technologies, cybersecurity for teenagers, vehicle data security, artificial intelligence and personal data protection.

Special events will also be organized in communities, campuses, villages and enterprises to raise people's awareness of cybersecurity.

As of June, the number of China's netizens grew to approximately 1.05 billion, with the ratio of internet access coverage nationwide reaching 74.4 percent, according to a report on China's internet development released by the China Internet Network Information Center.

China launched its first cybersecurity week in 2014.
