China Cybersecurity Law – Implementation Overview and Predictions for 2018

Please email yammie@britcham.com for more information

With the world’s largest population of internet and smartphone users, an ever growing list of local technology companies going global, and a young population eager to embrace technology in many forms, the introduction of the China Cybersecurity Law in June 2017, left many uncertain on what impact this would have on the world’s largest digital economy.

Several months on, with further proposed legislation incoming in the form of a second draft of the E-Commerce Law circulated in late November 2017, it is likely that further regulations are imminent, and likely to impact both local and multinational companies on their China businesses.

Join us as Baker McKenzie / FenXun partners Bao Zhi and Zhenyu Ruan provide an update as to the legal implications of the Cybersecurity Law. The presentation will cover:

 

-  Where we are now - overview of the implementation and enforcement of the Cybersecurity Law since June 2017

- Industry overview - implications of the Cybersecurity Law compliance requirement for internet, financial and healthcare industries and sectors

-  What lies ahead – thoughts about further implementation of the Cybersecurity Law in 2018
