Storyline


The ongoing 2017 Internet Security Conference are returning from state-of-the-art computer technologies to software developers and designers and testers who make advanced technologies what they are in the first place. The conference went underway in Beijing on Tuesday.

"I think it's a very good thing because human is the center of the digital life and that is as well a very important thing to generate security for different kinds of infrastructures," commented Benjamin Kunz Mejri, founder and penetration tester of Germany-based Vulnerability Laboratory.

He was responding to the theme of this year's conference, "Of all things, human is the measure".

And the German software tester was right that it's indeed important to generate security for all kinds of infrastructures, like online mobile payment, Internet-based sharing economy, and artificial intelligence.

Internet security has become so important due to the fact that some 3 billion people in the world have roamed the Internet in the first half of 2017. About one quarter of them are found in China. So any problems arising from software loopholes may prey on the fame or fortune of these Internet users wherever they are.

"We used to take software loopholes as trivial developer mistakes, but attackers swoop on these loopholes and cyber security depends on finding and mending them. So software loopholes are the musts for both hackers and cyber guards," said Zhou Hongyi, CEO of Qihoo 360, a Chinese Internet security firm.

Finding loopholes and fighting hackers are no more separated individual efforts by software developers like Zhou.

China has passed into law in June a whole set of cyber-security regulations, to better protect the interests and rights of Internet users.

"We've completed working out regulations concerning verification and initial evaluation of data security and information protection. These efforts aim at combating cyber attacks and online frauds," said Yang Xiaowei, deputy director of China's Internet watchdog - Cyberspace Administration.

Thanks to efforts of both individuals and the state as a whole in China, crack-downs on online fakes, frauds and fusses are on their right paths.

And people in and out of the trade can see and feel the change of before and right now.

"I've been working in this industry for nine years. This year they're holding a lot of activities for people to participate in and learn. It’s getting better year after year," said Kong Taoxun, a Chinese penetration test engineer.

And this year, conference organizers have paired meetings off with exhibits in kind and with even hands-on experiences with cloud computing, big data technology and model concepts of Internet-safe motor vehicles.

The annual conference was first held in 2013 with the joint initiation of the Internet Society of China and Cyber-Security Association of China.
