New Cybersecurity Rules Give Regime Control of Data Outside China

from The Epoch Times:

WASHINGTON—The U.S. government is “very concerned” about China’s new cybersecurity measures that put American companies at risk of losing sensitive data.

Beijing enacted in October 2019 a cryptography law that came into effect on Jan. 1. The new legislation, combined with comprehensive cybersecurity measures China has been passing in the past several years, creates a suite of challenges for foreign companies operating in the country.

“We’re very concerned about laws like we’re seeing—like that one in China,” Robert Strayer, the deputy assistant secretary of state for cyber and international communications and information policy, said Jan 10 at a press briefing.
