China Reveals More Details on Cybersecurity LawFebruary 13, 2017
In his February 13, 2017, Forbes.com column, O’Melveny partner Ron Cheng discussed the latest details to emerge about China’s forthcoming cybersecurity law. In the column, “China Reveals More Details on Its Impending Cybersecurity Law,” Cheng outlined the origins and focus of a recent draft of the law, and discussed its implications for inspection requirements.
“Even if adopted, the draft is not likely to be the last word on the law, whether from the CAC or another regulatory body,” he wrote. “As the draft suggests, the scope of Chinese regulation could differ in some measure from the Law itself.”
Cheng handles both anti-corruption and data security and privacy matters and is co-located in Hong Kong and Los Angeles. He is one of very few Mandarin-speaking attorneys with experience in both US and Chinese criminal law enforcement.
