Our Event

June 24
This members only session is part of CBBC's Digital China member events programme.

China’s Cybersecurity Law was adopted in 2017, establishing a comprehensive legal framework for data security, followed by various regulations and measures released in the three years to refer the key requirements in CSL. On 27 April 2020, the Cyberspace Administration of China (“CAC”) together with 12 other bureaus, including the National Development and Reform Commission, jointly issued the Measures for Cyber Security Review, which will be officially implemented on 1 June, 2020. The measures put forward the core idea of taking Critical Information Infrastructure Operators (“CIIO”) as the starting point for reviewing, which reflects the trend of China’s cybersecurity review and supervision.
