The foundation of my country’s network security work continues to be consolidated
Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping has focused on the development trend of the information age and put forward a series of new ideas, new viewpoints, such as “No cyber security, no national security”, “The development of cyber information industry must implement the people-centered development thinking”, etc. The new conclusions have guided my country’s cybersecurity and informatization industry to make historic achievements.
Zhuang Rongwen, deputy director of the Central Propaganda Department, director of the Central Cyberspace Administration of China, and director of the National Cyberspace Administration of China, pointed out that under the guidance of General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important thinking on cyber power, the Central Cyberspace Administration of China, in conjunction with various regions and departments, strengthens the top-level design in the field of cybersecurity. Solving prominent problems in the field of network security and consolidating the foundation for network security work. my country’s network security assurance system has been continuously improved, and the level of protection capabilities has been significantly improved.
The cybersecurity law, data security law, personal information protection law…the promulgation of a series of laws and regulations has continuously consolidated the foundation of national cybersecurity work.
At the same time, my country attaches great importance to the protection of young people’s online rights and interests. It has strengthened the legal protection of young people’s online behavior through the revision of the Law on the Protection of Minors and the promulgation of regulations on the protection of minors on the Internet. Infringements of illegal and criminal behaviors, such as malicious Internet information and privacy violations targeting young people.
“The young generation and the Internet are the main force for co-construction, co-governance, and sharing of network security.” He Junke, first secretary of the Communist Youth League Central Secretariat, pointed out that young people are the direct beneficiaries of network security and must strictly abide by Internet-related laws and ethics. Resist all kinds of network chaos, and strive to develop a good quality of being civilized to surf the Internet and consciously maintaining network security.
Currently, network “ransomware attacks” occur from time to time, causing many adverse effects such as “disconnection”, “disconnection”, “disconnection”, “disconnection”, “disconnection”, and “production”. Data shows that in 2021, there will be one blackmail attack every 11 seconds, and there will be more than 3 million times throughout the year. At the 2021 National Cyber Security Publicity Week Cyber Security Expo, in response to various cyber security issues, China Telecom, China Mobile, State Grid, Anheng Information, Qi Anxin, NSFOCUS and other companies discussed cyber security products and cyber security precautions. The respective solutions are given.
“In the digital age, cyber security has entered a’deep water’.” Qi Xiangdong, chairman of Qi Anxin Group, believes that the future network security situation will become more and more complicated. “If we want to enjoy the dividends brought by the future digital era, we must increase Big investment in cyber security.” The cyber security industry should focus on three major links: pre-defense, ongoing operations, and post-event consolidation to resist blackmail attacks throughout the entire process.

Cultivate high-level cyber security talents
While cyberspace has brought great convenience to people, the threats and risk vulnerabilities of cybersecurity have become increasingly prominent. At the 2021 National Cyber Security Promotion Week “Cyberspace Security Discipline Professional Construction and Talent Training Forum” held on the 12th, the “Network Information Security Industry Talent Development Report (2020-2021 Edition)” (hereinafter referred to as the “Report”) was officially released . The “Report” shows that the demand for talents in my country’s cybersecurity industry is growing rapidly, and the network of talents continues to expand.
Yin Hao, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and a researcher of the Academy of Military Sciences, said that at present, it is difficult to respond to complex threats by relying solely on product stacking defenses. The closed loop of management through network security services has become a development trend, and the demand for network security services continues to increase. Therefore, it is necessary to focus on the output of industry-education cooperation, enhance the intensity of subject education, further accelerate the gradual cultivation of the network security professional talent team, improve the network security vocational training standards and certification rules, and cultivate practical network security talents.
“The world is currently in an era of major changes centered on information technology. AI has also brought new changes in the training of cybersecurity talents.” Yang Zongkai, president of Xidian University, believes that in response to the new changes that AI brings to the training of cybersecurity talents, We must take the initiative to break the wall of thinking, integrate production and education, and build a more open network security training system. To cope with the profound changes in the demand for cybersecurity talents, we should actively seek changes, reconstruct the education environment, reconstruct the AI + security curriculum system, reshape the teacher’s ability standards, reconstruct the ability evaluation system, and create a new format of AI + education for network security.
Professor He Xiaowei, Director of the Information Construction and Management Office and Director of the Network and Data Center of Northwest University, believes that for colleges and universities, the key to doing a good job in network security lies in understanding the current status and security background of the school’s information assets, and discovering security vulnerabilities and business risks in a timely manner. Such as security risks, always pay attention to data security issues such as teacher and student privacy leakage, fully perceive the real-time security situation of the school, and achieve full life cycle network security management.

Govern the Internet according to law, escort the healthy growth of minors
At the Youth Network Protection Forum of the National Cyber Security Awareness Week in 2021, guests at the meeting focused on the themes of preventing juvenile cybercrime, building a juvenile-friendly cyberspace, and building a clear cyberspace led by the construction of cyber law, from theory and practice The level was shared.
The “Report on Internet Utilization of Minors in China (2020)” shows that the Internet penetration rate of minors in my country has reached 99.2%, which is much higher than the overall Internet penetration rate of my country (64.5%). The age at which minors first contacted the Internet has been decreasing, and the proportion of people 10 years of age and younger who have started contacting the Internet has reached 78%.
“To escort young people’s cybersecurity, we must constantly demonstrate the power of law.” Ren Xianliang, vice chairman of the National People’s Congress Social Construction Committee and chairman of the China Federation of Network Social Organizations, said that to build a good network ecology for the healthy growth of young people, it is necessary to further weave tightly. The network of network security protection laws. Ren Xianliang believes that cyberspace needs order as much as the real world. In response to the chaos in cyberspace and the prominent problems that infringe on the legitimate rights and interests of young people, we must adhere to the integration of legislation and law enforcement.
“The newly revised Law on the Protection of Minors clearly stipulates the responsibilities and measures of the government, society, schools, families, and other entities in the protection of minors on the Internet, in order to achieve comprehensive protection covering both online and offline, and has opened up for minors. A new chapter in the protection of people’s networks.” China Soong Ching Ling Foundation Party Secretary and Executive Vice Chairman Hang Yuanxiang said that strengthening the legal protection of minors is the key.
With regard to further promoting the construction of a legal environment for youth cybersecurity, Guo Kaiyuan, director of the Youth Law Institute of the China Youth Research Center, suggested that the first is to do a good job of linking up laws at different levels. Regarding the safety of young people using the Internet, my country has formed a three-dimensional legal system at different levels, but how to do a good job of connecting online and offline, home and school, etc., still needs to be improved and explored. The second is to do a fine-tuned legislative work. For example: How to implement the game time limit and who will supervise it? How to characterize minors’ live-broadcasting behavior in practice? These need to be further refined and clarified.
