WASHINGTON - White House officials on Thursday planned to unveil a major legislative proposal aimed at improving US cybersecurity and protecting the economy, an administration official said.

The proposal is the result of 2-1/2 years of work. US computers have long been subject to hacking attacks, many of them believed to have originated in China.

"By introducing the first major cybersecurity legislative proposal for any administration, we are demonstrating President Obama's commitment to addressing complex and systemic national vulnerabilities that place the American people and economy at risk," the official said.
