China Issues Draft of Data Security Administrative Measures
The Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) has released draft Data Security Administrative Measures for public comment.
The Measures supplement the Cybersecurity Law of China that went into effect on June 1, 2017, with detailed and practical requirements for network operators who collect, store, transmit, process and use data within Chinese territory. The Measures likely will significantly impact network operators’ compliance programs in China. The Measures cover 40 articles in total, divided among four chapters, that address data collection, processing and use and data security.
