     ​The Government Chief Information Officer, Mr Tony Wong, today (September 11) led a delegation of Hong Kong's cybersecurity industry to attend the Guangdong Cybersecurity Week 2023 and Cybersecurity Expo in Guangzhou for two consecutive days in support of the annual China Cybersecurity Week and to exchange views on technologies and the latest developments in cybersecurity of Hong Kong and Guangdong.

     Mr Wong attended the opening ceremony of the Guangdong Cybersecurity Week as the guest of honour and gave an overview of the cybersecurity strategies and related implementation matters of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) at the Cybersecurity Summit. "Hong Kong and the Mainland have been actively bringing in various innovative technologies to promote smart city development, and this will also pose new challenges to cybersecurity. I hope that industries in Hong Kong and the Mainland will strengthen their ties, work together to promote the development of cybersecurity technologies and industries, and make contributions to both cybersecurity and national security," said Mr Wong.

     He added that the HKSAR Government had emphasised the importance of building a secure cyber environment in the Hong Kong Innovation and Technology Development Blueprint announced in December last year, and would continue to put in place measures and plans to enhance the awareness of cybersecurity among different sectors in the community and strengthen Hong Kong's cybersecurity capability.

     The delegation will meet with the industry in Guangdong Province tomorrow (September 12) to understand the Mainland business environment. Mr Wong will then attend the closing ceremony of the Yuedun 2023 Guangdong Provincial Digital Government Cyber Security Practical Offense and Defense Exercise and return to Hong Kong in the evening.

     The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) has all along supported China Cybersecurity Week activities over the years and has worked hand-in-hand with stakeholders to promote and strengthen public awareness of cybersecurity. In addition to the delegation's participation in the Guangdong Cybersecurity Week events, the OGCIO has joined forces with stakeholders and organised a series of activities this year, including the Build a Secure Cyberspace 2023 - Protect Your Online Identity Seminar and Speech Contest Award Ceremony to be held on September 22 in collaboration with the Hong Kong Police Force and the Hong Kong Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Centre. This event will feature representatives from the OGCIO as well as cybersecurity experts, who will share recommendations on the protection of online identities with a view to raising cybersecurity awareness among organisations and the general public. Other activities of the Hong Kong Cybersecurity Week include the Cyber Security Summit Hong Kong 2023, the Smart & Secure City Hall, All-out Anti-Phishing Moving Showroom Campaign, and more. Participation from both the industry and the general public are most welcome.
