Why should you care?

The People's Republic of China enacted a comprehensive Cybersecurity Law in 2017 that could apply to all data collected about Chinese nationals. But crucial details have been rolling out since and many businesses are still perplexed as to how to ensure compliance. From a research and data analytics perspective, many questions arise but, in short: what do you need to be aware of before conducting a research project in China?


This webinar is made possible with the support of TechNode. TechNode was founded in 2007 by Dr. Lu Gang to tell the world what's happening in China's tech and startup ecosystem. Since, TechNode has become the center of a unique worldwide tech ecosystem, working closely with a global community of experts and acting as the exclusive partner of TechCrunch.

Join us on Thursday 12th December for a fascinating discussion on China's complex Cybersecurity Law, its key principles and differences to EU and US legislation and what you need to look out for as it is enforced.
