Event Details

China's recently implemented cybersecurity law, which is composed of six systems that form the Information and Technology Communications sector, establishes a comprehensive regulatory regime for cybersecurity, formalizes legal responsibilities for network operators and service providers, and develops regulatory supervision in a systematic way. The fourth system of the law is called "Personal Information and Important Data Protection System"and focuses on three categories: personal information, data transfer, and data management/governance.

The latest update of the law still lacked a clear guideline as to how companies are expected to implement and incorporate these new aspects of the law, leading to even more confusion on how to implement them in the context of foreign trade.

Join AmCham China to learn more about understanding, creating, and implementing a program that follows this new data protection regime within your firm from the contexts of US, European, and Chinese perspectives.
