Privacy and Data Security in China

With its growing complexity of network security and data privacy legislation and standards, China has become a critical part of our global practice. Our China Privacy and Data Security team advises clients on a host of issues both within China and affecting their cross-border data flows and cross-border network operations.

Ranked as Band 1 in Data Protection & Privacy by Chambers Greater China Region 2024 and Tier 1 in Data Protection by The Legal 500 China 2024, our China team monitors developments relating to the Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL), the Cybersecurity Law (CSL), the Data Security Law (DSL) and the raft of other data privacy and security legislation and standards affecting clients across a broad range of industries. We help multinational companies ensure compliance with their obligations under the PIPL, CSL, and DSL by working closely with them to review policies, contracts, and data transfer and localization arrangements. We also help clients negotiate and renegotiate agreements with service providers and customers in order to ensure compliance.

We bring to our client work a sophisticated understanding of industry-specific privacy and data security obligations in mainland PRC. The local team is able to leverage our global privacy expertise to ensure that revised policies and arrangements properly address offshore privacy laws such as the GDPR and Hong Kong’s Personal Data Privacy Ordinance in addition to mainland Chinese laws.
