2022 is a special year for China's data compliance framework. We have witnessed the implementation of the Data Security Law and the Personal Information Protection Law, the release of a revised draft of Cybersecurity Law, relevant supporting rules of the law, and active law enforcement activities.

Our GEN team has prepared a special year end review, sharing our observations and comments on data compliance. The review covers interpretation of the revised draft of the Cybersecurity Law, analysis of rules on cross-border data transfer, insights into data compliance rules on interconnected vehicles, and opinions on MLPS 2.0 requirements for cybersecurity. We hope that this review helps you better understand China's data compliance legislations and law enforcement trends.  Feel free to ask us any questions and comment!
