IP Working Group - Cybersecurity: Compliance and Protection of Trade Secrets

November 14, 2017


Presented by 

Zhao Jun
Director of Law Institute
Qihoo 360

Galaad Delval

Alban Taraire
General Manager, Founder
Net K5

Cybersecurity lately has moved to the center of society’s attention, due to increasing intrusion threat and new bodies of rules. Multinational companies have two very good reasons to follow the pace: 1) complying with local rules, and 2) protecting the core of their business: intellectual property (IP) rights and trade secrets (e.g. business information, know-how, technology).

PRC’s Cybersecurity Law entered into force in June 2017, and the EU General Data Protection Regulation will do likewise in May 2018. Further, 75-90% of listed companies’ value lies in intangible assets, such as IP rights, trade secrets. As, most of them are stored in computers and/or networks, securing access thereto is crucial.

Our three speakers will shed light on cybersecurity from different angles:
- Zhao Jun will explain the context of the legislation, the politics and the main rules of PRC’s Cybersecurity Law from the perspective of a leading Chinese anti-virus company. Further,
- Galaad Delval will delve into cross-border legal matters and give legal advice to enterprises and
- Alban Taraire will focus on technical measures that companies can easily set up.

Q&A afterwards.
