Biden cyber rules

President Biden on Friday called for the United States and other democratic nations to create “rules” for cybersecurity and tech issues as part of addressing and pushing back against threats from China and Russia.

“We must shape the rules that will govern the advance of technologies and the norms of behavior in cyberspace, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, so they are used to lift people up, not used to pin them down,” Biden said during remarks at the White House as part of the virtual Munich Security Conference.

Biden called for both ensuring greater transparency of groups and individuals behind major Chinese companies, along with confronting Russia on its aggressive actions against the U.S. and its allies in cyberspace.
