China data regime
China’s data governance regime is rapidly evolving and there have been many recent changes to China’s approach to data protection and privacy.
With the implementation now of three key laws – the Cybersecurity Law (CSL), Data Security Law (DSL), and Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL), it becomes a priority for many companies to develop a practical strategy to stay ahead of the ever-changing data ecosystem.
With the extraterritorial reach of some of these laws, international companies that do business in and with China now have a new set of data rules by which to play.
