In order to meet the city.s demand for information security during the 
Olympic Games, the first municipal Information Security Emergency 
Response and Disposal Centre was set up in Beijing on April 1; and it 
will operate 24 hour a day, according to the Beijing Times.

In the history of the Olympic Games there are records of official 
websites being attacked. Currently, network attacks against the Olympic 
Games have occurred from time to time. Last year alone, 1.79 million IP 
addresses were implanted Trojan events - among which 130,000 took place 
in Beijing. The Information Security Emergency Response and Disposal 
Centre has set up 10 emergency protection groups against viruses, 
network attacks, hacking, network incidents; and for emergency 
resources. When the city's important information system suffers illegal 
attacks and the system fails, the Center will respond and reduce loss 
immediately.
