On September 1, regulations on cross-border data transfer published by the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) come into force. They force foreign companies to adhere to compliance requirements, resulting in restrictions on data traffic and higher costs. The cybersecurity and data protection regulatory regime also applies to companies and individuals outside China once they are involved in China-related data activities that affect national security, public interest, or other legal interests of Chinese citizens or organizations. Companies operating internationally may therefore decide to store relevant data locally in China.
In this webinar, CHINABRAND CONSULTING provides brief and compact information on,
- which new regulations in the area of cross-border data transfer are now relevant,
- what companies have to consider and
- which actions are recommended.
