Event Details

As business grows increasingly reliant on online systems, cybersecurity and its regulation has never been more critical to commercial operations worldwide. In China, the past few years have seen authorities regulate the previously ungoverned area of data and cyberspace in China through measures such as the 2017 Cybersecurity Law. In 2018, British business ranked cybersecurity as the most pressing challenge in BritCham's Member Sentiment Survey, reflecting the far-reaching ramifications for foreign business that the law will have, with such issues as cross-border data restrictions, unclear legislation and a lack of confidence in data protections taking their toll.

How can business understand these laws, and how can they manage this? What has led up to where we are now and what direction can we expect regulation to take in the future? Two cybersecurity experts answer questions, present their thoughts and sit for a panel discussion with industry.
