In the second half of 2020, the MIC will increase the spending by government agencies and localities on cyber security to at least 10% of total IT expenditure.
Besides, the ministry will encourage localities to deploy the four-layer model to ensure safety and network security so that 100% of local governments will be protected by a four-layer shield by the end of 2020.
Moreover, the MIC will support businesses to provide the market with 80% of safe products and network security.
