China Cyber Security Law – Draft coming up

this blog has been thoroughly underused the last couple of months, but let’s grab the opportunity of the draft Cyber Security Law being discussed by the NPC to start using it again:

For background on the bill see the analysis by German based China Think Tank MERICS:

Then the official Xinhua news agency statement on the NPC deliberations:

Many international (and national) experts and stakeholders are eagerly awaiting the publication of the official draft. This should be up for public comment July 1, so we can expect some intensive analysis and media coverage very soon.
