Chinese military wants better cybersecurity, domestic software tech

Reports from the Chinese state media indicate the Chinese military plans to further improve its cybersecurity efforts, while also putting an emphasis on domestic software development. There is concern that the Internet and current cybersecurity is dominated by Western countries, and not enough is being done in China to promote development.




Major Chinese universities have highly educated students, and they will be called upon to help develop domestic software.


"Information security must be considered an underlying project in military battle preparedness," said the People's Liberation Army Daily. "We will strongly advance the domestic and independent building of programs, and strengthen the foundations of our information security."


Recently, FBI director James Comey listed China as the biggest cyberthreat to the United States - due to organized state-sponsored hacking.
