The ongoing event is focusing on discussions and exchanges related to hot topics, such as 5G networks, blockchain, personnel training in cyber security, to explore the development of the sector under current conditions.

The two-day conference includes one main forum and seven sub-forums, all designed to provide a strong and complete picture of the latest in contemporary cyber security. In addition, other activities such as an entrepreneur's seminar and a cyber security skills competition, are being held.

As one of the eight major internet node cities in China and as a next-generation internet demonstration city, in recent years Xi'an has accelerated the development of the cyber security industry, supported by the electronics information industry.

It has attracted a large number of Fortune Global 500 companies and China's top 100 software companies, forming a complete industrial production and supply chain in design, research and development, manufacturing and applications.

At present, Xi'an is seizing the strategic opportunities presented by the country's "new infrastructure development program” to accelerate the construction of new infrastructure such as 5G networks, artificial intelligence and industrial internet.
