360 Enterprise Security Group, also known as Qihoo 360, is running China’s newly opened and first cybersecurity innovation center. The company has been in the news recently both at home and abroad for helping out the FBI but causing upset with its security camera spying platform.

China opened its first cybersecurity innovation center on Tuesday which aims to use civil-military integration as part of the country’s cyber defenses, the People’s Daily reported. To begin with the center will build systems to protect military-related internet services and a mechanism for sharing threat intelligence. It will encourage private sector involvement, working with small and medium companies to cooperate on R&D.

The center will also set up a fund for cybersecurity innovation investment and may even look into how to assemble cyber militia and teams to monitor and analyze ongoing threats.
