The new cyber space vetting policy targeted at IT products and services, which was announced on Thursday, is a belated move rightly taken by China, one of the world's largest victims of cyber theft.

Major IT products and services will be subject to government cyber security vetting if they concern national security and public interest, according to the State Internet Information Office.

The vetting is aimed to prevent a supplier from taking advantage of its products and services to illegally control, disturb or shut down the computer systems of its clients, as well as gather, store, process or use its clients' information, according to an official statement.
