POSTP Key Considerations for Data Compliance in the HR World

Key Considerations for Data Compliance in the HR World

The past year has witnessed rapid developments of data-related laws in the PRC. The legal framework for data compliance established based on the “troika” laws of network safety and data protection (i.e. Cybersecurity Law, PIPL, and Data Security Law) has been developed through the introduction of various regulations and standards which fill the normative gaps in certain sectors and gradually enhance the judicial practice and the enforcement of data protection laws.  

In the course of HR management, companies will inevitably be subject to more legal obligations in processing their employees’ personal data given the recent legal developments. In this breakfast briefing, our speakers will share their observations and thoughts from the HR data compliance perspective.
