(p.1) China and Cybersecurity: Controversy and Context

Chapter 1 Introduction
China and Cybersecurity

Jon R. Lindsay

Oxford University Press

This introduction provides an overview of Chinese national policy and institutions for managing cybersecurity. It then summarizes the organization of this volume and the content of its chapters. Cybersecurity is shaped by the strategic interaction of many different actors and defies any simple interpretation or morality tale. There is no one single Chinese view on cybersecurity or cyberwarfare, just as there is no one Western view. While the details of cyber policy debate are sure to change, the important structural and cultural influences change more slowly. The contributions in this volume describe how some of these enduring factors affect cybersecurity institutions and recent activity in China, or how more fundamental political and economic incentives shape the use of technology of any vintage.
