China's revised draft data localization measures

The Cyberspace Administration of China (the CAC) released a revised draft of its Security Assessment for Personal Information and Important Data Transmitted Outside of the People's Republic of China Measures (the Second Draft Export Review Measures).
There was a significant volume of industry commentary, and the Second Draft Export Review Measures relax some of the more stringent requirements stated in the First Draft Export Review Measures originally due to become law on June 1, 2017 when China's Cyber Security Law officially took effect.
The changes make a few technical adjustments and include a temporary reprieve from China's new data localization measures through December 31, 2018.
