China Passes Cybersecurity Law

10 November 2016
Mayer Brown JSM Legal Update
On 7 November 2016, the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress of China (NPC) passed the controversial Cybersecurity Law (the “CSL”). The CSL has gone through three readings since the release of the first draft on 6 July 2015 and will take effect in June 2017. As China’s first comprehensive privacy and security regulation in the cyberspace, the CSL enhances data protection in many aspects while bringing in compliance challenges for the international community at the same time.
