Apple responds to cyber security law in China

This action by Apple responds to compliance with Chinese legislation that came into effect in May this year and requires technology companies to protect local users' data in a country-based information center; All this, as a prevention of cyber-terrorist attacks.
As stated in a statement by Apple:
The addition of this data center will allow us to improve the speed and reliability of our products and services, in addition to complying with the newly approved regulations.
Despite the willingness of some companies to work to comply with this law, others have viewed their application with mistrust, arguing that not being able to send data outside the country would be a barrier to innovation, while granting access Total to the technology of foreign companies. Also, companies that must comply with this law must pass through several security controls of the Chinese government, whose conditions are not yet clear.
But, Apple has several reasons to continue to rely on the good faith of this measure. China is one of the most important markets of the company and in this sense, the technological giant prefers to avoid any action that slows its growth in this country.
