Episode 9 : Navigating China's Cybersecurity Environment: The Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL)
UK companies operating in China are beholden to an increasing number of cybersecurity regulations. These influence a raft of business activities, including the ease with which a Chinese subsidiary of a multinational company can share customer or R&D data with other parts of the business; how businesses store data; and how corporate entities interact with the emerging Social Credit System. In this episode, Joe Cash talks to Torsten Weller about two new regulations making their way into law that are bound to add to the compliance burden of companies needing to move data to and from China, the Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) and the Data Security Law (DSL). How similar is the PIPL to the European Union's GDPR? How can UK companies transfer data obtained by their Chinese subsidiaries out of the country? How does China determine liability when there is a data breach? This episode of the China Business Brief has you covered.
