11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, One Woodrow Wilson Plaza, 1300 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Please join us on a conversation on the current direction of China’s cybersecurity strategy and the implications of China’s much-anticipated Cyber Security Law which came into effect on June 1st.
Almost all digitally-developed countries agree on the importance of cybersecurity regulations and the need for proper measures to protect citizens and critical infrastructure. China, with over 700 million Internet users, has taken dramatic steps to establish a set of laws, regulations, and standards to begin the construction of a domestic cyber governance system, with the government being firmly in control.
How is China seeking to balance the growth and importance of the Internet with cybersecurity threats and concerns? How will cross-border data transfers be impacted by China’s draft regulations? How will this steer the conversation on international standards? Please join us on a conversation on the current direction of China’s cybersecurity strategy and the implications of China’s much-anticipated Cyber Security Law which came into effect on June 1st.
