China Information Security Technology Wins One-Third Market Share in the Initial Roll-out of National Standards for Police-use GIS across China

April 20, 2010

SHENZHEN, China, April 20 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — China Information
Security Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq: CPBY) (“China Information Security,” or the
“Company”), specialized in Geographic Information System (“GIS”), digital
public security and hospital information systems, and a leading GIS software
provider in China, today announced that it recently signed contracts valued at
approximately US$6 million, with 6 cities and provinces including Shanghai,
Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Jiangxi, Hunan and Guangxi, for the installation of their
core police-use geographic information systems (“PGIS”) platform under the
initial roll-out of China’s National PGIS Standardization Project (the
“Project”). The contracts are expected to be completed by the end of 2010.

The goal of the Project is to upgrade and integrate all variations of PGIS
systems throughout the country, in order to provide uniformity of standards,
basic data, common technology and application mode characteristics; share
information among different police divisions and regions across China; and
enhance quick response capabilities for public emergencies. The Company’s core
PGIS technology was selected last year by China’s Ministry of Public Security
for use in standardizing PGIS technologies under the Project.

The Project will be implemented in 660 cities across China over the next 5
years and is expected to result in the standardization and interconnection of
all PGIS systems in China. A total of 18 cities and provinces have been
selected to participate in the first round of roll-out of the Project.

Mr. Jiang Huai Lin, Chairman and CEO of the Company, commented, “We are
excited to win contracts representing one-third of the regions covered in the
initial roll-out of the Project. We believe that these wins are a nod to our
technological sophistication, proven track record, and contribution to the
PGIS national standards. These wins are also an indication that our key
products are effectively breaking into critical markets outside of the
Guangdong region, notably in Shanghai, one of the largest cities in China and
an emerging global financial center. We expect that Shanghai will serve as an
anchor city for our further expansion into Eastern China, and will help to
fuel our long-term goal to be the largest GIS provider in China. The new PGIS
contracts also represent future opportunities for follow-on projects and
maintenance contracts in these new markets once initial PGIS platforms are
established. We expect that such recurring opportunities will establish our
reputation in these new markets, and enable us to further penetrate them in
the long-term.”
