What's On

Registration Closed

The passage of China's Cyber Security Law has been one of the most important regulatory developments globally in the past 12 months. Key aspects of the law, including its data localization measure, its intrusive approach to technology regulation and expansive remit for regulatory access and oversight, have raised significant concerns for businesses across a wide range of sectors.

In the seven months since the law has come into force, we continue to see significant uncertainty about who is regulated and what must be done to comply with the law. The introduction of the law has also coincided with other regulatory and administrative changes in related areas such as telecommunications regulation, including a further crackdown on the usage of unlicensed virtual private network ("VPN") services in Mainland China.

The Chamber has invited Roy Zou and Mark Parsons, partners from Hogan Lovells to brief members on the practical steps businesses should take in order to comply with China's Cyber Security Law.

Speaker(s) Roy Zou, Partner, Hogan Lovells
Based in Beijing, Mr Roy Zou deals with complex corporate and commercial transactions in Mainland China, with particular focus on regulatory work in the financial services and Telecommunications, Media and Technology ("TMT") sectors. He has worked with companies on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, market entry and international trade and has extensive experience in dealing with approval authorities, regulators and other government agencies on regulatory work.

Mark Parsons, Partner, Hogan Lovells
Mr Mark Parsons is one of the Asia-Pacific region's leading advisors in commercial and regulatory work in data protection, cybersecurity and FinTech.
