Personal Data Protection and Network Security Measures for Companies in the Greater Bay Area - Legal and IT Considerations

Seminar |Thursday 22 Oct | 2:00PM - 4:30 PM | Zhong Lun Law Firm Guangzhou Office

Personal data protection, privacy rights, and network and cybersecurity have become increasingly important issues to pay attention to in China due to recent regulatory changes and compliance requirements.

Following the enactment of China’s Cyber Security Law on 1 June 2017, China has undergone rapid development in regards to its data privacy and cybersecurity legal framework, with legislators continuously introducing new laws and regulations, including most recently China’s first Civil Code (which was issued on 28 May 2020, and will come into force on 1 January 2021), as well as a draft Data Security Law (which was issued for public comment on 3 July 2020).

Furthermore, the authorities have recently stepped up enforcement by conducting a number of campaigns and investigations in relation to personal data protection breaches, directed in particular at mobile App operators. While the regulatory changes are bringing China more in line with international standards with regards to data privacy and cybersecurity, it has also meant that companies operating in China are at greater risk of non-compliance.

Companies in China are therefore starting to form internal company policies on data privacy, cybersecurity, and data leakages, as well as introduce or improve their IT systems and measures to ensure strong network security and prevent the disclosure or leakage of data.
