Forbes.com Column: China Enforces First Action Under Developing Cyber Security LawAugust 9, 2017
In his latest column for Forbes.com, O’Melveny partner Ron Cheng sheds light on the first enforcement action under China’s Cyber Security Law (the Law).
The Law went into effect on June 1, 2017, but its first enforcement just came under Chongqing’s Public Security Bureau’s warning to a local Internet data center company for failure to preserve a blog. The company was ordered to rectify that deficiency within 15 days. While this is a small violation, it marks the first enforcement action under the Law.
The article also details a number of other developments that companies and other organizations should note.
