The law firm perspective

Over the past two and a half years, China has published a raft of laws and regulations concerning data protection, loosely based on the European model. When planning system architectures and business models, companies need to have three main themes in mind: security, collection of personal data and offshoring of data. There is also the need to preserve confidentiality of data which is not personal data, but which consists of commercial secrets. So, underpinning the framework requires imposing contractual obligations on all employees, contractors and business partners to keep information confidential as well as to adhere to all data privacy laws.
