China to focus more on handling cyber attacks
Beijing: China will pay more attention to cross-border cyber attacks while improving international cooperation, the country's top cyber security watchdog said Thursday.
The internet is a valuable commercial tool. But on too many occasions users find their privacy violated through hacking or the stealing of data, reported China Daily citing Zhang Feng, chief engineer at the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
The official was speaking during a conference, which attracted leading Internet and telecom companies and was organised by the National Computer Network Emergency Response Technical Team, responsible for tackling external and internal cyber attacks.
Chinese industry has placed an emphasis on boosting online security, Zhang added.
