Cartoons to boost safety on Internet

Cartoon images and mini videos have become the new format for promoting Internet security and warning the public of risks like telecommunication fraud and privacy leaks.

The annual China Cybersecurity Week which began yesterday is aimed at enhancing national cybersecurity and promoting a healthy online environment.

Shanghai released two new cartoon characters — Yulan and Hubao — in mini dramas to promote cybersecurity. The pair represent Shanghai’s nickname and the city’s flower.

With attendees numbering over 1 million, a total of 22 short videos and many new types of artwork were presented during the opening session in Shanghai. They covered topics including data security, personal information protection and password security.

Shanghai is using digital networks to improve city management. It’s important for people to heighten their awareness of the cybersecurity in today’s digital society, local officials said during the opening ceremony yesterday.
