Cybersecurity is not just a technology issue that affects a narrow range of ICT companies, rather it is a critical business concern that affects all businesses which rely on ICT technology and especially those with data in China. The Cybersecurity Law demonstrates the Chinese government’s awareness of the complex challenges that the rapidly changing ICT sector faces, as well as the government’s desire to regulate cyberspace according to the rule of law.
The law establishes a comprehensive regulatory regime for cyber security, formalizes legal responsibilities for “network operators” and “network service providers,” and develops regulatory supervision in a systematic way. The law will regulate all network services and activities within China, including construction, operation, maintenance, and usage of networks. Accordingly, many American companies have concerns regarding data localization requirements and the restriction of cross-border data flows, security reviews and specifications for ICT products and services, and overly broad requirements to share data and provide technical support and assistance to law enforcement agencies when requested.
