China's Cybersecurity law regulations and what companies operating in China should pay attention to

Understand cybersecurity risks and paths to compliance

Get an overview of China’s current Cybersecurity and data protection regulatory landscape and emphasize the relevant implications raised by evolving regulations and standards for Swiss and Liechtenstein companies operating in the Chinese market.

Join our webinar «CHINA’S CYBERSECURITY LAW REGULATIONS AND THE IMPACT FOR COMPANIES OPERATING IN CHINA» on June 11 at 9.00 am (Swiss time, CET/MEZ) and get first-hand insights from Sinolytics, our partners and experts who will share their experience with you. 

In 2017, China implemented its new Cybersecurity Law. This served as a framework for different regulations and standards that have been rolled out at increasingly high speeds in past years. One of the most significant regulatory measures is the Multi-Level Protection Scheme 2.0 (“MLPS 2.0”), which came into effect December 2019. It mandates that all network operators in China, including companies ranging from MNCs to SMEs, increase their Cybersecurity and data protection capacities. More Cybersecurity regulations and standards are set to impact companies in China such as the upcoming Personal Information Security Specification that will come into effect on October 1st 2020 – fresh challenges await.

Understanding Cybersecurity risks and paths to compliance is increasingly important for doing business in China. IT, eCommerce and legal departments of companies of all sizes can expect more audits in areas such as compliance in network products and encryption tools, Cybersecurity post-incident risk evaluation and personnel training. Companies from industries that collect sensitive personal data from the Chinese public or are likely to be deemed “Critical Information Infrastructure Operators”, such as those in the finance or pharmaceutical industries, can expect even more stringent requirements. Importantly, any company that conducts cross-border data transfers will be subject to extra security assessment procedures overseen by local authorities.
