Abstract

With 420 million Internet users, China has become the world’s largest Internet population. Yet, the Internet penetration rate in China is only 31.6%, which means that the Chinese Internet population has the potential to triple in size in the foreseeable future. With cybercrimes transcending national boundaries, the security of the Internet in China is becoming increasingly significant to the global Internet. As in the West, organised cybercrimes are flourishing in China. With a rapidly expanding Internet population, China is fast becoming a giant hub of cybercrime activities. Therefore, it is in the interest of Western cyber-security experts to increase their attention to China’s cyber-security.
