Gabriela Kennedy's Asia Pacific column in the latest issue of Computer Law & Security Review features Mayer Brown article, titled "China passes cyber security law" by Gabriela Kennedy and Xiaoyan Zhang.

Gabriela and Xiaoyan discuss the impact of China's first Cybersecurity Law (the "CSL"), which was passed in November 2016. The controversial new law enhances data protection but at the same time it introduces compliance challenges for the international community because of new data localisation requirements.

Gabriela is a member of the editorial board of Computer Law & Security Review and edits the Asia Pacific column, a country-by-country analysis of the latest legal developments, cases and issues relating to IT, media and telecommunications in the Asia Pacific region.
