In the wake of the rapid development of Internet technology, there is a rising trend in both the statistics and sophistication of technology crime related to cyber security. The information systems of the critical infrastructures in Hong Kong, including those of the financial and transport sectors, are supported by computers and networked systems. If the information systems came under attack, there might be a tremendous impact on society.

To monitor and assist the protection of the critical infrastructures' information systems, and to strengthen liaison and co-operation with other government organisations and stakeholders in cyber security, the Force has established a Cyber Security Centre in the Technology Crime Division (TCD) of Commercial Crime Bureau (CCB).

Located in Arsenal House of Police Headquarters, the Cyber Security Centre was opened by Commissioner Tsang Wai-hung on December 7 before a large gathering of guests from Security Bureau, Office of the Government Chief Information Officer, Department of Justice and Hong Kong Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Centre.

Establishment of the centre underlines the Force's determination to provide enhanced and integrated readiness for cyber security in Hong Kong in a bid to maintain Hong Kong as one of the safest and most stable societies in the world.

Following the ceremony, TCD officers led the guests in a tour of centre and introduced various facilities. The guests took a great interest in, and had a high opinion of, the facilities.
