Cheng, Wallace Lead Webinar on China’s New Cybersecurity LawJanuary 20, 2017
O’Melveny partners Ronald Cheng and Walker Wallace recently led a webinar (available below) focusing on China’s controversial new cybersecurity law. Companies with a business interest in China or handling data of Chinese customers will want to be aware of what these developments may mean for their organizations. Cheng and Wallace were joined on the panel by experts from Stroz Friedberg and Aon.
- What parts of the law are likely to apply to a company with operations in China?
- How does an internal investigation of a data breach in China differ from that elsewhere?
- What does the law’s data localization requirement mean?
- Is cyber insurance a viable option in China?
- What kinds of cyber security products are available?
- What are the relevant data security standards?
Based in Hong Kong and Los Angeles, Cheng is a former US cyber prosecutor who has worked with Chinese law enforcement.
A 20-year resident of Shanghai, Wallace is the managing partner of the firm’s Shanghai office. He regularly advises multinational companies on their China strategies and is highly rated by Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500 for China-based corporate M&A.
