Barbara Li, a partner in Norton Rose Fulbright’s Beijing office, recently spoke on an International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) Recorded Web Conference discussing legal updates surrounding the cybersecurity law passed in November 2016 that imposes new cybersecurity data governance requirements on companies doing business in and with China.

The law encompasses both “network operators,” defined essentially as anyone owning or operating a computer system network, as well as “suppliers of network products and services.” The law will become effective June 1, 2017. (We have previously posted about the new law.)

The web conference includes information on:

  • the intent of the new law
  • who it applies to
  • what the obligations entail
  • how it will be enforced and what the potential fines will be
  • and how it will likely affect organizations doing business in and with China
