One of the most discussed parts of China’s legislative agenda over the past 14 months has been the draft Cyber Security Law (网络安全法) (the “CSL”).  After going through three official drafts, the CSL was formally announced on November 7, 2016, and will come into effect on June 1, 2017. 

The stated goal of the CSL is to protect China’s “cyber sovereignty” and preserve cyber security.   The law will regulate all network services and activities within China, including construction, operation, maintenance, and usage of networks.

Much of the law governs personal information and the protection of minors on-line; subjects more germane to regulating internet service providers’ relationship to the public. However, other provisions dealing with requirements for data localization, data protection, security inspection and national security review have become issues of concern for multi-nationals operating in China.

To better describe the law, its implications and how companies might consider preparedness for the June 1 implementation, SEMI has invited perspective from legal experts from Morrison & Foerster.
