Taiwan's government agencies face around five million cyberattacks and probes a day, an official said Wednesday, as a report warned of increasing Chinese cyber warfare targeting the self-ruled island.
Taiwanese officials have previously said the island faces millions of cyberattacks every month, with around half of them believed to originate from China.
Speaking in parliament, cyber security department director Chien Hung-wei said Taiwan's government network faces "five million attacks and scans a day".
A scan in cyber security refers to an attempt to locate weaknesses in a server.
