Cybersecurity Law Changes

The most recent changes to China’s cyber security law took effect on 1 June. Many experts and business professionals are confused by the law and feel as though not enough information was provided before it was implemented. This is a large issue, as failure to comply can result in fines as high as US$150,000. The law focuses mainly on protecting personal information and individual privacy and standardizes the collection and usage of personal information. For example, information on Chinese citizens or relating to national security must be stored on domestic servers.
