The internet today has a role in virtually all aspects of life, from shopping to classified military information. This means that everyone from the public to private sectors and even ordinary citizens must consider cybersecurity protection at top of their agenda.
The Chinese Central Government released its Cybersecurity Law in June 2017, followed by the Cybersecurity Incident Emergency Response System in the same month. The law contains regulations covering four key aspects: network operator, critical information infrastructure, personal information and important data. Overall, the law aims to provide complete regulatory coverage in cybersecurity.
The Chamber is delighted to have invited Ms Susan Ning, Senior Partner at King & Wood Mallesons, to speak on the subject at a 2 April roundtable.
Susan will introduce the Cybersecurity Law and the Emergency Response System, and regulations handling personal data, cross-border data transfer, security review of network products and services, and critical information infrastructure operation. Susan will also advise on compliance to help members avoid risks when they expand or launch their businesses in the Mainland.
