Cyber security awareness week kicks off

GOVERNMENT and industry officials urged consumers to join the war against online fraud and spam messages as the National Cyber Security Awareness Week kicked off yesterday.

The campaign, organized by six national regulators, including the Ministry of Public Security and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, is aimed at improving the national online security level and raise people’s awareness. Problems like online fraud, leakage of personal information and network hacking have become national issues.

“Every one has to attend the campaign. Otherwise, all of us will become victims,” said Zhou Hongyi, chairman of Qihoo 360, the country’s biggest online security company.

Domestic firms, including Tencent, Baidu and Qihoo 360, and overseas giants like Microsoft and Kaspersky attended an online security expo in Wuhan, Hubei Province, as part of the national campaign.

Microsoft yesterday announced it will establish a transparency center in Beijing, which would open parts of Microsoft source codes to government-backed organizations.
