China has been one of the foremost players who has taken the early lead in this direction. China has come up with not just its National Cyber Security Law, but has also now come up with new supplement legal frameworks to protect and preserve cyber security. With effect from 1st of January 2018, China has introduced and implemented its Public Internet Cybersecurity Threat Monitoring and Mitigation Measures, 2018.
