Event ended.


2021 marks an important milestone for data regulation in China with the entry in force of two major laws: the Data Security Law (DSL) and the Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL).


The new regulatory framework imposes on organizations processing data a new set of obligations but also raises unanswered questions and uncertainty. Practically what do these new laws mean for your organization ? Where to start from ? What are the actions to take and how to prioritize them ? During this conference we will propose to path a way for organizations to dive into this regulatory framework and to build their compliance program



We will review the different obligations taking into account not only the DSL and PIPL but also the Cybersecurity Law (CSL). In particular we will examine how to build a compliance program taking into account:

  • organizational obligations (classification of data, contingency plan, training, audit, risk assessment, Multi-level protection scheme (MLPS) , etc.)
  • needs of human resources (person in charge of cybersecurity and data protection : what are the requirements  according to CSL, DSL and PIPL ? what are the roles an organization should look at ? who should be part of a dedicated team ?)

  • technical obligations (what are the requirements ? how to ensure a steady compliance status ?)
