The Personal Information Protection Law of the People’s Republic of China (“PIPL”) was officially promulgated in August 2020 and took effect on November 1st, 2021. With significant administrative fines linked to non-compliance of the PIPL and potential liabilities for “directly responsible persons” within an organization, it’s vital to get ahead and stay compliant as we see more and more implementing rules issues and the rise of enforcement cases.
Please join us at this workshop to hear about the key elements of this comprehensive and dedicated personal information protection law in China. The similarities and differences between the PIPL and the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) of the European Union will also be discussed. Hear from experts as they share their insight as to the challenges to the companies and how to prepare and stay ahead of the game as the enforcement draws closer.
