  • China's Law Makers Call for Information Security Legislation
  • March 5, 1999 (BEIJING) -- Deputies to the Second Session of the Ninth National People's Congress, China's highest law-making body, called for legislation to ensure information security.
    China cracked nearly 100 cases of computer break-in last year. Computer network of financial institutions such as banks and securities companies were attacked the most by the hackers.

    Shanghai deputy Zhang Lansheng pointed out that insecurity of information has become the leading problem plaguing the rising e-business in China.

    Although the popularization of computers in coastal cities makes e-business possible, the stores are concerned about a safe flow of electronic cash and lack of regulations governing such trading, which have held back the development of e-business in China.

    China has stepped up efforts to ensure information security in recent years. Stipulations about computer-related crimes were included into the Criminal Law two years ago, and a series of regulations governing the protection of computer information system have also been unveiled.
