On November 1, 2021, China’s Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) came into effect. With China being home to 1.01 billion internet users—the largest online community in the world—the PIPL is poised to have an enormous impact internationally and change the ways in which parties conduct business both within and outside of China. Since June 2022, China’s data regulators have issued a series of wide-ranging laws and regulations to provide more details and guidance on the implementation of cross-border data transfer mechanisms.
In this webinar, Ian Yinan Wang will discuss personal information protection and data cross-border transfer in China and how they will affect doing business.
This program is part of the Considering China webinar series.
