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.
