In recent years, personal data security has been increasingly scrutinized by national regulatory bodies in China. Since 2019, Chinese authorities have cracked down on illegal collection and misuse of personal information by internet-related companies. As a result, hundreds of app operators have been fined, issued rectification orders, or warned for their lack of privacy protections and failure to explicitly outline the scope of personal information use or excessive data collection in their apps, among other practices. Given the ongoing regulatory environment, the certifications granted to 360 Finance recognize the Company’s core competency in data privacy and security technology and further consolidate the Company’s competitive advantage in terms of regulatory compliance.
Mr. Haisheng Wu, Chief Executive Officer and Director of 360 Finance, commented, “We are pleased to receive the certifications for app security and app information security from CVERC. This is a formal acknowledgement from the top nationwide certification body of our commitment to maintaining the highest of standards for data security and privacy protection when developing apps. Going forward, we will continue to invest in privacy protection while leveraging cooperation with our external ecosystem partners to collaboratively establish a secure and reliable environment for personal data protection.”
