China Cyber Security Versus Freedom of Speech: End of Anonymous?
Foreign technology companies were given notice on operations in the country of China. Appears that China is planning to enforce, in the next 3 quarters of a year, a new opposition to foreign companies in the technology market. Granted, companies may be further scrutinized, and deal with handing over data access in events of criminal investigations. However, can such companies prove their databases and servers are capable of countering hacks, ransoming, and other security problems?

Network security, let's face it, needs to be bettered so that cyber espionage can be suppressed (hopefully, at maximum). Such provisions are slated for June 2017 in the People's Republic of China, to which they have decided strict regulation is required on maintaining data security and operations.

Many companies, including Google for example, shut down operations in China due to concerns of censorship, scrutinization, or even counter-intelligence leaks either incidental or non-incidental. There are many security experts dubbing this operation as the "Great Firewall." What else could we call it? "The Great Firewall of China." LMBO or ROFL

Verifying user identities before going online prevents people from anonymizing, and could curb the continuous risk of the infamous Hacktivist power-alliance called, "Anonymous." This may or may not characterize an end to this power-alliance; however, what is good is that if identities are verified, it will prevent security problems and be able to lock cyber-criminals up when possible. Bad part is, this violates privacy of people who prefer to stay anonymous (not necessarily part of the Anonymous group). There are far too many introverts that go online, which is not a bad thing, but this does cause reason for people to prefer to stay anonymous, which is why nicknames are used more than standard First Name Surname combinations.

They assure that it would not limit foreign trade or limit the scope of the development for technology companies, but it may slow the progress of some companies, especially those that operate multi-nationally. Those companies that are deemed helpful to the Chinese economy are going to have to be much more lending of data to be placed on the Chinese servers... However, what makes the Chinese servers so secure? Are they truly better than some of the better companies around the world? Are their servers and networks truly operating perfectly or streamlined for the latest security threats and mitigating botnets/vulnerabilities?

Of course, China had seemed to find The Honorable President-Elect Donald Trump's run for president to be humorous; however, what will they do now that he has indeed been elected. If all continues to fare well, what will Donald Trump do to improve cyber security? Will he cooperate with other countries' methods? These are all questions that remain unanswered and must surface with responses soon by our countries' and world's politicians.

The Chinese government is hugely concerned with what the US President can do for them, so they are looking toward the future and trying to control much of what needs to be addressed. This type of issue for what the presidential elect would do for cyber security was addressed a couple days ago on our site here . Trump appears to plan to improve cyber defenses and place his foot forward to impact our world with a Cyber Review Team from members of the military. Will he also take Clinton's plan to propose the 5G rollout to improve the internet of things, or will he suppress the operations of furthering the internet of things until many cyber security problems can be addressed?

We must look forward to Trump's immediate action on Cyber Security, even if it isn't within the first 100 days of presidency. Due to the rise of ISIS and Anonymous, companies, industries, and countries are being battered around the world, to which this whole thing needs fixed!

This, I feel, is the key phrase: "Network security, let's face it, needs to be bettered so that cyber espionage can be suppressed "

My question.

How would you enforce anything with the constant presence of VPN's, TOR? once my packets are sent through services outside an ISP, you'd still have no idea who I am or what I'm looking at.
