Preparing for China’s New Data Laws: Understanding the Impact on Japanese Corporations

Latham lawyers discuss how China’s new data security laws will impact Japanese businesses.


In this webcast we will provide an overview of the new data laws in China – covering the Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL), the Data Security Law and the Security Protection Regulations on the Critical Information Infrastructure. Our discussion will review the key changes arising from these laws, what is still yet to be determined, and how the obligations compare to other data protection regimes such as the Act on the Protection of Personal Information (APPI) of Japan.


  • Overview of new data laws in China: PIPL, Data Security Law, Security Protection Regulations on the Critical Information Infrastructure

  • Comparative review of the new laws with APPI, GDPR and emerging data protection regulation
  • How Japanese companies can leverage existing compliance programmes in complying with the new laws
