The technological revolution and tense geopolitics have exacerbated the risks regarding China’s scientific and technological security. Therefore, building a risk monitoring and early warning system in the field of scientific and technological security in China is crucial for maintaining the technological security and even national security of the country. In the face of risks regarding intensified game, loss of autonomous control, technology mismatch, and sustainable supply of talents in the field of science and technology in China, this study clarifies the internal operation logic of the risk monitoring and early warning system, empowers the construction of the system through technological means, and proposes guarantee strategies. Specifically, the logic of risk monitoring and early warning in the field of technological security is as follows: technological security is oriented toward cross-domain cooperation and focuses on industrial governance, institutional support is the prerequisite, information sharing is the carrier, intellectual participation serves as the foundation, and technological innovation is the core. From the perspective of systems theory, the risk monitoring and early warning system can be constructed by establishing an indicator system, clarifying the monitoring and early warning process, and building a modular model. To ensure the effective implementation and high-quality operation of the monitoring and early warning system, the country needs to improve relevant regulations  and industry standards, expand the integration of new technologies, improve the emergency response and collaboration mechanisms,  establish monitoring and early warning guidance institutions, strengthen talent cultivation and team building, and promote the integrated development of scientific and technological innovation and security.
