    As tensions between the U.S. and China heighten over data security issues, the Chinese government has taken a proactive step to protect users' privacy with a data security initiative that it believes can serve as “a global standard for data security”.

     

    The Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi, appearing in a video during a closed-door meeting in Beijing on Tuesday, announced the eight-part framework that touches on contentious topics such as Beijing’s handling of user data.

    Per the rules laid out by the initiative, Beijing will not ask Chinese companies to transfer overseas data to the government in breach of other countries’ laws. China also calls on states to oppose mass surveillance against other states and asks companies to refrain from installing backdoors in their products and services for illegal data collection.
