In order to meet the city’s demand for information security during the Olympic Games, the first municipal Information Security Emergency Response and Disposal Centre was set up in Beijing on April 1; and it will operate 24 hour a day, according to the Beijing Times.
In the history of the Olympic Games there are records of official websites being attacked. Currently, network attacks against the Olympic Games have occurred from time to time. Last year alone, 1.79 million IP addresses were implanted Trojan events - among which 130,000 took place in Beijing. The Information Security Emergency Response and Disposal Centre has set up 10 emergency protection groups against viruses, network attacks, hacking, network incidents; and for emergency resources. When the city's important information system suffers illegal attacks and the system fails, the Center will respond and reduce loss immediately.
