China developing national info security system

The Chinese government expects to complete the development of a national information security system within the next five years.

According to a report today in official newspaper China Daily, while the national information security system is under development, the Chinese government is trying other ways to raise the level of information security in the country, including drafting a law that would require the use of information security systems.

A draft of the law is expected to be completed by the end of 2005.

Information security is a widespread problem in China, where many networks and servers are vulnerable to attack. China Daily said that a survey this year of 7,072 important information networks had found that 58% had security problems and 10% had suffered "huge" financial losses.
