As the enforcement of the Cybersecurity Law is gaining traction in Mainland China, questions on the scope of compliance with data protection and cybersecurity provisions have continuously emerged.

What framework for cross-border data transfer should be followed? What cybersecurity requirements should be met to comply with the law and will those requirements change? Which regulator should be contacted and when?

The British Chamber Shanghai's Legal Focus Group, together with AustCham Shanghai and CanCham Shanghai, invites members to this presentation, which will provide a state of data protection and cybersecurity as of today, as well as expected compliance issues from future legal developments to answer the above questions and beyond. Current compliance topics, such as cross-border data transfer, data protection obligations, or shadow IT will be covered, as well as compliance processes and methods through a variety of business cases studies. Coupling theory and practice, this presentation is aiming at providing you the means to support today’s compliance, as well as tomorrow’s for data protection and cybersecurity in Mainland China.
