NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hunton & Williams LLP recently hosted a webinar with Beijing partner Manuel “Bing” Maisog on China’s new Cybersecurity Law. The new law, which became effective on June 1, imposes new restrictions on information flows from operators of key information infrastructure that have the potential to substantially shut down otherwise routine cross-border transfers of information.
During the webinar, Maisog discussed key aspects of the new Cybersecurity Law, including data localization, technology procurement, the handling of personal information, cybersecurity compliance requirements and a potential obligation to support government agencies. Maisog also discussed categories of enterprises established under the new law, sets of obligations that apply to each category, and the kinds of entities likely to fall within each category.
