China’s Cyber Security Law – More Stringent Regulations for Network Security

China Insight - IP

On 7 November 2016 the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress of the PRC has approved the third draft of the PRC Cyber Security Law (“Law”). The Law will come into force on 1 June 2017. The Law applies to the construction, operation, maintenance and use of information networks in China, as well as supervision and administration of the network security. This newsletter discusses three major issues to which the Law will bring the most significant changes of the existing regulatory regime. These issues have a long-term impact on multinational companies in doing business in China, namely: 

(i) Obligations imposed on network operators (“Network Operators”);

(ii) Obligations imposed on critical information infrastructure operators (“CIIOs”); and

(iii) Restrictions on key network products (“Key Network Products”).
