China has improved its cyber maturity through clarifying and centralising the coordination of government cyber agencies and continuing to produce relevant cyber legislation. Cybercrime is actively but inconsistently addressed, with an unwarranted focus on content control. China has articulated a deepened understanding of the cyber-military threat but has failed to translate this into a tangible policy or program. There has been greater interaction between the public and private sector but the overall development of a Chinese digital economy is held back by poor rural infrastructure and lack of coherent strategy. Censorship continues to be a fundamental barrier to public debate, and overall cyber maturity in China.
