As China expands its ecosystem for data and technology, multinationals must continuously adapt their operations, products and services. In 2021 China will tighten its data regulatory regime with the passage of the Data Security Law and the Personal Information Protection Law. What do broadening data security regulations mean for companies? And are the new regulations clearly defined?

AmCham Shanghai is pleased to present a seminar on China's evolving data security landscape. David Pan, Partner, Head of Corporate & Compliance Service Group at Llinks Law will first give a readout of the recently passed Data Security Law. Next, Carly Ramsey, Director at Control Risks will present on compliance strategies for the Data Security Law. Finally, Carly will moderate an industry panel on how companies are managing the new law, which includes Joseph Chan, Chief Legal Officer at YumChina, Boon Kim Fam, Legal Director, Compliance and Privacy, Asia Pacific at PVH Corp, and David Xu, Senior Manager, Coretech-Digital Workplace Solution at GE China.
