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, and 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 organisations of all shapes and sizes, and that it will be economically, socially and culturally damaging for the nations that are targeted.
