Why the U.S. should pay attention to China’s draft Data Security Law

Straits Interactive-DPEX Network | 2020-10-07 08:16

Earlier this year, China proposed a new data security law that, if passed, could position it as a global leader in data regulation. Although no date has been publicly proposed to vote on the law, it is expected to be considered early next year. Before the draft Data Security Law (DSL), China’s premier piece of legislation related to issues of data, cybersecurity, and network management was the 2017 Cybersecurity Law. The differences between that law and the proposed Data Security Law show an evolving approach to managing the interests of private citizens, companies, and the government. But as always, national security is at the center.
