Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,

SwissCham Beijing, in collaboration with French Chamber in Beijing and the German Chamber, is delighted to invite you to a unique seminar about China's growing cyber security.

The seminar will begin with a presentation given by Ms. Anne Lambert. She will introduce the content of the new cyber security law and decrypt requirements and challenges faced by companies with the new law, especially for multinational corporations in China (for example: key information infrastructure, the volume of personal data, penalties and so on). The new law will be implemented on 1st June 2017).

Ms. Phillippa Jones will then briefly review the developing legal framework of cyber control and  look at some issues raised in business in China in terms of local data storage, source code protection, encryption, internet speed, licensing and standards. Her presentation will also mention how new regulations might affect business at different stages of engagement with the China market and canvas strategies for remaining in the market.

Finally, Mr. Ben Dooley will share with you the US government’s response to the new cyber security law, and the challenges and opportunities the law has created for US companies as they consider doing business in China.

With best regards,

Your SwissCham Team
