The Chinese Cybersecurity Law (CCL) Fact Sheet
The Chinese Cybersecurity Law (CCL) provides a legislative framework to regulate the Chinese digital landscape, including the appropriate handling of personal information and important data.
This wide-reaching legislation mandates that data originating in China must be stored there, unless specific criteria are met. Should the data need to be transferred overseas for processing, the processor or ‘Network Operator’ must first conduct a security self-assessment. If the data contains personal information, individual consent is required from the data subject first; they must also be notified of who the data recipient is, the purpose, scope, content, and country the recipient resides in.
