Study Times published an article discussing the major challenges that China faces in the area of “national information security.” According to the article these challenges include the following. The general public has a serious lack of awareness of information security. Insufficient regulations and policies mean there is a lack of adequate mechanisms to protect the development of information. An international monopoly on cyber security technology deprives China of opportunities to obtain the high tech necessary to bring domestic technology up to speed, thus creating a serious vulnerability in national information security. Malicious attacks against information and transmission systems have seriously violated China’s national information security. An insufficient investment of capital and human resources in information security has led to an increase in threats to national information security.
