2014 was a significant year for China’s cyber security development. China formally proposed a top-down design and strategic objective to turn itself into a major Internet power. It also played a more positive role in international cyberspace governance. Meanwhile, as international and domestic cyber security incidents occurred continuously, the situation is still grim. In 2015, China needed to strengthen the concept of cyber security under its open policy, adapt to the new era of global Internet management, and place greater emphasis on and better serve the purpose of building itself into a major Internet power.
