Speakers talk about cyber secruity and global cooperation issues at a forum held in Wuzhen. 

Cyber security is one of the top-level concerns for countries and firms, speakers told a forum at the ongoing sixth World Internet Conference. 

Industry officials also called for cross-industry and global cooperation to ensure cyber security during the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation of Cyberspace, a sub-forum of the summit in Wuzhen.

"No countries and organizations can be immune to online attacks. Almost all major cyber attacks are anonymous and difficult to find and trace their sources,” said Qi Xiangdong, chairman of Qi An Xin Technology.

Firms have to solve the challenges of online security like complex business, large traffic, high concurrency, multi-architecture and rapid product iteration. Booming user numbers also force firms to ensure data protection of all users, said Wang Jingying, CEO of LinkSure Network. 

At present, Shanghai-based LinkSure Network has about 800 million monthly active users.

The challenges and huge user base require firms to adopt more cooperation, Wang added.

The situation also requires each country to cooperate to resist cyber attacks and achieve win-win results, Qi added.

LinkSure, along with partners including Pingan Technology and ZTO Express, has established an industry alliance. The Cybersecurity and Data Threat Integrated Alliance is founded to fight cyber crimes together.
