The Ministry of Public Security (MPS) recently launched a nationwide security inspection and correction campaign regarding Big Data applications in China.(1)

This campaign is one of a series of network security inspection projects launched by the MPS on 1 June 2018, which target:

key information systems;
critical information infrastructure; and
Big Data.

The Big Data campaign focuses on the level of supervision, security and protection afforded in the collection, storage, application, transfer and destruction of such data. A key part of the project is the differentiation between lawfully and unlawfully collected data.

Guo Qiquan, a general engineer in the MPS network security safeguard department, commented that Big Data security is an essential part of the national network security investigations, with a particular focus on the protection of personal information. According to Qiquan, information and communication technology assets, including storage hardware and information tunnels, also require protection.
