China Developing Personal Information Security Standard
China’s National Information Security Standardization Technical Committee was reported on May 31st to have organized a meeting to launch a working group, comprised of representatives from government, academia and industry, tasked with drafting a national Personal Information Security Standard. The standard would serve as a non-binding baseline for the data privacy and security practices of companies operating in China. It could influence future data privacy and security-related legislation, while also providing regulators with guidance on current laws and regulations that are often vaguely worded.
