The Politicization of Cybersecurity in the PRC

AmCham Special Event

“Cybersecurity” is an ambiguous term that has been used to refer to a range of phenomena over the past three decades and across different national contexts. Yet when nation states meet to discuss international norms and strategic goals relating to Cybersecurity, a shared understanding of the subject matter is indispensable for reaching any agreements. This talk examines how “cybersecurity” as used in Chinese professional and academic circles expanded significantly in the late 1990s and early 2002s to include an increasing number of issues beyond technical questions, including criticism of the government.
