This training will offer an overview of the current iteration of China's cybersecurity compliance and data protection framework, narrowing down onto a discussion of the essential regulatory considerations for undertaking the data security self-assessments required for all network operators.

Attendees will leave the training with a 'roadmap' towards cybersecurity and data compliance in China and a working understanding of the Multi-Level Protection Scheme (MLPS) 2.0, which will be essential for evaluating their status and then effectively implementing internal compliance best practices.

Benefits for the participants:

  • Participants start by learning the fundamentals of China's cybersecurity framework and how it might impact their essential business functions.
  • Participants gain an understanding of several key pieces of the framework which together make up the MLPS 2.0.
  • Through case studies and small group discussions, participants will gain insights and skills necessary for evaluating their company's data compliance footing and creating strategies to fill compliance gaps.
