WASHINGTON -- The White House called Monday for “serious steps” by China to stop cybertheft, which it described as intolerable to the international community.
National Security Adviser Tom Donilon’s comments reflect growing concern in Washington over the security risk posed by cyber-intrusions and the economic costs for America.
Donilon said U.S. businesses are increasingly speaking out about cybertheft emanating from China “on a very large scale.” Such theft targets confidential business information and proprietary technologies. He said Beijing “should take serious steps to investigate and put a stop to these activities” and recognize the risk it poses to international trade and to U.S.-Chinese relations.
