On the 1st of November, the new Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) came into place and China continues its creation of a stricter regulatory landscape for data and network security, having a large impact on multinational companies.

SwedCham has kindly asked FBCS members to join them for the seminar on the 19th of November in Suzhou, which will be followed by an after work (sign up for after work here).

Xiaomin Qu, specialist counsel at Wikborg Rein, together with Lars-Åke Severin, Founder and CEO of PSU Consulting, will go through the new law and guide you through your compliance options. Due to current travel restrictions, PSU might share their part from online, but we sincerely hope to welcome Lars-Åke in person. We are very glad to have DUSA, Eolane and Cité de L'objet Connecté Suzhou as supporters for this event.

The new PIPL applies to all companies present in China but also has extraterritorial effect for companies even outside the country. The law is considered to be a game changer and it is therefore crucial for companies to stay on top of the new legal requirements and ensure compliance as the law has already come into place.

The seminar will help you breakdown the new legal requirements and risks associated by using real examples and case studies, and will provide you with practical suggestions for compliance.

  • What are the key legal requirement under the PIPL and what are the obvious risks?
  • What measures should be taken to mitigate data privacy threats, and what can be considered as "low hanging fruit"?
  • What are the most important things to consider in order to be compliant with the new law?
