700 Dutch names on Chinese records

The data of 700 Dutch residents, including politicians, their families, entrepreneurs and nobility, are in a catalog set by a Chinese company, the database contains info of 2.4 million people, the NRC reported on Wednesday.

The data was assembled by Chinese tech firm Zhenhua Data and was gained from an Australian cyber safety firm, namely Internet 2.0 through American mooter Christopher Balding, who taught in China. Chinese experts assure that all info is built on publicly available information such as social media outlines and corporate websites” experts assure.

However, Robert Potter, co-founder of Internet 2.0, told the Guardian that the file is an ‘attraction’ and has a ‘high value’ insight of an IT corporation. The Dutch files include the nine-year-old daughter of an influential parliamentarian, start-up czar prince Constantijn, bureaucrats, and the sister of Labor party head Lodewijk Asscher.

“It would seem that the accumulators intended to map out decision-making processes in a country,” said Internet 2.0’s cofounder David Robinson. “They have composed statistics of people active in politics, civil service, IT zone, and other significant corporations. And then they worked on family members.” A Zhenhua representative informed the Guardian that all data is collected is already available in the public sphere. “This is just a data amalgamation. Our business model and associates are confidential. The list doesn’t have 2 million people added,” she told ‘Our clients are research businesses and groups.”
