US, China agree to guidelines for requesting cybercrime assistance

Landmark deal reached in high-level talks.

The United States and China have reached an agreement on guidelines for requesting assistance on cybercrime and other malicious online activities.

The agreement was reached in talks in Washington this week among officials including US Attorney General Loretta Lynch, US Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Chinese Public Security Minister Guo Shengkun.

“These guidelines will establish common understanding and expectations regarding the information to be included in such requests and the timeliness of responses,” the US said.

A ‘hotline’ will be developed to escalate issues that may arise in responding to cybercrime, and both sides have agreed to co-operate on cases of cyber-enabled crimes like child exploitation, theft of trade secrets, fraud and misuse of technology and communications for terrorist activities, and to enhance exchanges on network protection.
