Chinas 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.

The country is also planning to open an institute under the Chinese Academy of Sciences for training in national cybersecurity projects.

Critics describe China’s new law as harsh and one which would allow authorities to police the internet services targeting foreign firms and potentially require companies to surrender their intellectual property.
