According to the Notice, the Procuratorates will step up regulatory efforts on the following aspects:

  1. Key industries dealing with massive personal information (sensitive personal information in particular), which are prone to personal information leakage;
  2. Crucial sectors of the industries concerning finance, telecommunications, Internet, and employment that are prone to telecommunications frauds; and
  3. Vulnerable groups including the elderly, students, and minors that are prone to telecommunications fraud.
