The Updated Cross-Border Data Transfer Regulatory Landscape

From September 1, China’s outbound data transfer security assessment measures will take effect, requiring certain transfers from China to destinations outside its borders to be subject to security reviews. The new measures are only part of a growing regulatory framework government outbound data transfers. An overall growing scrutiny of outbound data transfer themes raised in the CSL, DSL and PIPL, and increasing enforcement, is expected to complicate and raise compliance costs for many international businesses operating in China.
In this webinar, we are going to provide a detailed interpretation of Outbound Data Transfer Security Assessment Measures, update listeners on the cross-border data compliance landscape in China and discuss how organisations can mitigate existing and emerging risks.
