Are you doing business in or with China? Do you receive personal data or work-related data from your subsidiaries or business partners from China? If so, you need to know how Chinese Cybersecurity Law (CSL), Data Security Law (DSL) and Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) affect your operation and business.

This seminar, hosted by Setterwalls, will give you an overview of these laws and their most recent developments.
