UK looks to open security dialogue with China
On the third day of his visit to China, British Prime Minister David Cameron stated that he looks to open “a proper dialogue” with the country concerning cyber security.
According to a report by BBC, issues concerning cyber espionage were brought up during a meeting with Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang.
While China has always denied their involvement in such actions, its prime minister reportedly expressed a “readiness to engage,” and indicated that he would like to see more dialogue concerning cyber security.
Additionally, Kequiang stated that diplomats would be taking steps toward putting a proposal into “practical action.”
This year, a report authored by security firm Mandiant, detailed an espionage campaign that was traced to advanced persistent threat groups with China-based operations.
