Beijing Communications Administration Bureau has thoroughly implemented the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress, firmly put the interests of the people in the first place, constantly improve the awareness of APP operators in data security protection, enhance the ability of app data security governance, and ensure the security of users’ personal information data. Under the overall deployment of the Network Security Bureau of the Ministry of industry and information technology, the special action of Beijing app data security inspection and detection in 2020 was carried out in early September. In the sampling test, we found that there were three companies, including flash drive, used car with melon seeds and Jumei premium mobile app, collecting and using user information in violation of regulations and compulsory authorization. On November 16, Beijing Municipal Bureau of communications interviewed the responsible persons of relevant companies and issued a written rectification notice on the problems existing in the mobile app of the three companies and ordered the rectification within a time limit.
Beijing Administrative Bureau requires the interviewed enterprises to further improve their political position, earnestly fulfill the main responsibility of enterprise data security protection, fully realize the necessity of doing a good job in app network data security, and earnestly implement the problem rectification. First, rectify the problems found in this sampling test immediately, and submit a written rectification report within the specified time. At the same time, draw inferences from one instance to eliminate similar problems. Second, we should strengthen the study of relevant laws and regulations, such as the network security law, the regulations on the protection of personal information of telecommunications and Internet users, and constantly enhance legal awareness. The third is to further improve and improve the enterprise data security management and technical support measures, strengthen the standardized management of their own app data security, and constantly improve their own data security protection and governance capabilities.
Next, Beijing Administration Bureau will continue to increase the coverage of spot check on app data security issues in accordance with the special action work plan, and order the problem enterprises to rectify. For those enterprises that fail to rectify in time and in place, administrative penalties will be imposed in accordance with the law, so as to ensure the effectiveness of the special action of app data security inspection and detection, and fundamentally significantly improve the level of Telecom and Internet network data security in Beijing.
