China introduces new IT security rules for foreign technology companies

Seemingly in response to the US indictment this week of five PLA officers, China has introduced a number of IT security checks for foreign owned IT companies.

The State Internet Information Office (SIIO) in China said new ground rules would be established to protect the country’s national interests. This would ensure that no illegal interference and pilferage would occur in IT systems.

IBM, Microsoft and Cisco Systems, all currently supplying IT commodities to China, will carry the brunt of this new directive.
