Cybersecurity is a major focus area for governments worldwide. In the wake of new and enhanced legislation and policies to mitigate cyber risk, compliance in this regard is high on the agenda for many companies.

In this series, ILO caught up with some of our leading specialists around the world to discuss the key cybersecurity issues that affected their jurisdiction in 2019 and what to expect in 2020. 

The Chinese government has been cracking down on the unreasonable collection of personal data, introducing a number of new guidelines to ensure compliance in this regard. On the horizon in 2020 is the potential finalisation of the cross-border transfer rules, which – in their current form – impose stringent requirements on affected companies.

In the below video, Samuel Yang discusses how China has been approaching cybersecurity and what companies should do to ensure compliance.
