Warring State: China’s Cybersecurity Strategy

By Amy Chang

Research Associate Amy Chang explores the political, economic, and military objectives of China’s cybersecurity apparatus; reveals drivers and intentions of Chinese activity in cyberspace; and analyzes the development of Beijing’s cybersecurity infrastructure over the last three decades. 

This report contributes a solid foundation of understanding of China’s cybersecurity strategy, and aims to inform U.S. efforts in negotiating with China on cyber issues. As such, this report hopes to illuminate, though it is not a solution in itself. Ms. Chang notes that any solution must leverage U.S. advantages in this realm and increase China’s risk calculus sufficiently to alter China’s behavior.
