The Wall Street Journal: China taking more collaborative approach to cybersecurity

China is taking a more inclusive tack in instituting cybersecurity standards for foreign technology companies, allowing them to join a key government committee in an effort to ease foreign concerns over the controls.

The committee under the government’s powerful cyberspace administration is in charge of defining cybersecurity standards. For the first time, the body earlier this year allowed select foreign companies — Microsoft Corp. MSFT, +0.38% , Intel Corp. INTC, -0.17% , Cisco Systems Inc. CSCO, +0.74% and International Business Machines Corp. IBM, -0.26% — to take an active part in drafting rules, rather than participating simply as observers, said people familiar with the discussions.
