Description

The Cyber Security Law of the People’s Republic of China (CSL) entered into force on the 1st of June 2017. The CSL is the last of a trio of laws dealing with cybersecurity, including National Security Law (1st of July 2015) and Anti-Terrorism Law (1st of January 2016). It has significant implications with regards to data privacy and data transfer for EU SMEs doing business in China. The CSL is rather wide in scope, targeting topics such as: the internet security and the protection of private and sensitive information. This guide provides you with an overview of the CSL, its implications to data privacy and IP protection and offers SMEs tips on how to effectively protect their IP.
