Understand China's cyberwarfare

21st Century Chinese Cyberwarfare presents the salient information regarding the use of cyberwarfare doctrine by the People's Republic of China to promote its own interests and enforce its will on other nations. It draws from a combination of business, cultural, historical, and linguistic sources, as well as the author's personal experience, to attempt to explain China to the uninitiated. The author argues that the threat of Chinese cyberwarfare can no longer be ignored, that it is a clear and present danger to organizations of all shapes and sizes, and that it will be economically, societally and culturally damaging for the nations that are targeted.
