Following a lengthy legislative process, China’s first comprehensive data privacy law, the Personal Information Protection Law, was finally adopted on August 20 of this year and takes effect very shortly, on November 1. Many aspects of PIPL were modelled on EU’s GDPR, but the PIPL departs from and in many cases is stricter than GDPR in a number of respects.
MoFo speakers Paul McKenzie, Gordon Milner, Chuan Sun, and Xuezi Dan will provide an overview of some of the PIPL’s key requirements and discuss how companies should prepare for this law.
Among other topics, we will discuss data localization requirements under the PIPL and restrictions on cross-border transfers of personal information, which are more stringent than under either GDPR or pre-PIPL privacy rules in China.
NOTE: Two sessions are offered: one for Atlantic-hemisphere time zones on October 6, and another for Pacific-hemisphere time zones on October 12/13.
