BEIJING, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- China's cyberspace regulator on Wednesday revealed a set of draft revisions to the country's cybersecurity law to solicit public opinion.

China's cybersecurity law entered into force in 2017. It amended the Administrative Penalty Law and adopted the Data Security Law and the Law on Protection of Personal Information in 2021.

The draft revisions were formulated to coordinate the cybersecurity law with relevant legislation and improve the legal liability system, according to the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC).

The highlights of the proposed revisions include adjusting the types and ranges of administrative penalties for violations endangering network operation security and strengthening the responsibility of key information infrastructure operators.

The draft also seeks to improve the legal liability systems of network information security and personal information protection.

The deadline for submitting feedback is Sept. 29.
