As business grows increasingly reliant on online systems, cybersecurity and its regulation has never been more critical to commercial operations worldwide. In China, the past few years have seen authorities regulate the previously ungoverned area of data and cyberspace in China through measures such as the 2017 Cybersecurity Law.
