SCMP: China’s Three-year Plan to Boost its Cybersecurity Industry Amid Increasing Concerns for Data Safety

Access Partnership’s Policy Analyst, Kenn Yee, spoke with South China Morning Post on China’s three-year plan for boosting its cybersecurity amid growing concerns around the safety of its data in response to increasing global tension and rising calls for better individual protections.

“Cybersecurity threats have made headlines around the world as the Covid-19 pandemic forced everyone online, allowing hackers to leverage the technology supply chain as a point of entry to conduct attacks like those on Kaseya, Colonial Pipeline, SolarWinds and FireEye, according to Kenn Yee, a policy analyst at Access Partnership.“Regulators are scrambling to protect their critical assets by raising cybersecurity protections as a whole throughout their digital ecosystem. China’s three-year cybersecurity plan is such an effort,” said Yee.

Cybersecurity is becoming synonymous with national security and state sovereignty, according to Yee, with both China and the US pouring effort into the field.

“China’s three-year cybersecurity plan is also China’s cyber defence plan, which aims to harden China’s digital assets in its push for a resilient digital economy,” he said.
