China’s much-anticipated cyber security law came into effect on June 1, 2017. At the time of its publication, it was unclear who was subject to the new law and what exactly was covered. Eight months on, the law remains vague but there have been several key developments that are of concern to multinationals.
Against this backdrop, cyber-attacks against global corporations are increasing in severity and complexity. It is becoming increasingly important that senior management, and those who advise them, understand the security, regulatory and legal risks across jurisdictions.
Ben Wootliff, Partner and Head of Cyber Security in Asia Pacific will explore the following developments:
- Emergence of new regulations to support the cyber security law
- Enforcement activity and key targets
- How the atmospherics have changed since the law’s implementation
- What multinationals are doing in response to the changing environment
Michael Bahar, Co-Lead of Eversheds Sutherland’s Global Cybersecurity and Data Privacy team, will address in-depth cybersecurity and data privacy issues internationally, including advance planning, crisis management, cyber insurance, breach litigation and potential criminal proceedings.
During this discussion, Michael and Ben will also examine personal information collection and use, data export and the Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) vs network operator designation.
