China’s Cybersecurity Law Seeks Scrutiny Of Technology

Country's top internet regulator releases framework for stricter cyberspace laws, including review of local and foreign technology.

Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC), China’s chief internet regulator, has released a strategy framework for the country’s cybersecurity law passed in November and called on foreign countries to respect its cyber laws, Reuters reports.

CAC has stressed increased cybersecurity surveillance, including security review of technology in industries, both foreign and local. Top Chinese industries have been asked to follow this keeping national interest in mind and to prevent unfair competition.
