Prospects for US-China Cybercrime Cooperation: The Road Thus FarMarch 10, 2017
O'Melveny partner Ron Cheng authored the Lawfare post “Prospects for US-China Cybercrime Cooperation: The Road Thus Far” published March 9, 2017.
“While transnational cybercrime has played a part in the US-China relationship for some time, the issue assumed a high profile during the September 2015 US-China summit discussions that led to the US-China High-Level Joint Dialogue on Cybercrime and Related Issues,” Cheng explains in the article.
The third dialogue took place in December 2016 and included “the investigation of cybercrime and malicious cyber activities emanating from China or the United States,” including cooperation in investigations and the timely exchange of leads and information. In advance of the fourth round of the annual dialogue, expected in 2017, Cheng’s post provides a summary of “other cooperative efforts that predate or in practical respects intersect with these high-level discussions.”
Cheng handles both anti-corruption and data security and privacy matters and is co-located in Hong Kong and Los Angeles. He is one of very few Mandarin-speaking attorneys with experience in both US and Chinese criminal law enforcement. He served more than 22 years at the US Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California.
