Overview (Program Summary)
In 2022, China’s CAC published substantial guidance clarifying how companies may undertake cross-border data transfers out of the PRC, allowing companies to build their data protection compliance programmes. Such guidance includes draft standard contractual clauses and measures on obtaining a personal information certification and undertaking a security assessment. While further rules and guidance will likely continue to be published by the CAC to provide more practical implementation guidance, lawyers from Latham & Watkins will discuss with attendees the most updated guidelines (including the technical specifications on the certification mechanism) and what the practical steps these translate to help enable businesses to continue refining their data protection compliance program to account for the PRC PIPL and related data laws and how to transfer personal information outside of the PRC.
