On June 10, 2021, the government of the People's Republic of China passed a Data Security Law (DSL) to address the protection and processing of different types of data within the borders of the PRC. The DSL aims to regulate a wide range of issues in relation to the collection, storage, processing, use, provision, transaction and publication of any kind of data, and is a key supplement to the PRC Cybersecurity Law that has been in effect since June 1, 2017.

Join AmCham Shanghai's special event on Wednesday, August 25 from 9:00 to 11:00 am to hear comprehensive analysis from data security and legal experts on the DSL. Their discussion will help multinational companies to review and assess their data processing activities and ensure they are compliant.

Sunny Guan, Alibaba Cloud Security & Compliance Lead, will provide a detailed interpretation of the Data Security Law (DSL) and explain the overall provisions and future outlook for China's data security regime.

Drinkey Wei, Alibaba Cloud Senior Security Expert, will discuss the three major aspects of the DSL and how to remain compliant while doing business in China, with regards to the most up-to-date data security requirements. He will cover best practices of Alibaba in meeting these requirements as well as provide insight into Alibaba's recommended and proven data security framework.
