China’s Draft Data Security Measures and How They Compare to the GDPR

The Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) launched a public consultation on the draft Administrative Measures on Data Security (Draft Measures) on May 28, 2019. This consultation falls in the middle of the publication of the drafts for two other data protection rules, namely the Measures for Security Assessment for Cross-border Transfer of Personal Information and the Measures for Cybersecurity Review.

Together, these three measures will implement a significant portion of the Cyber Security Law (CSL) and become the first set of binding laws focused solely on data protection, adopting certain rules from the non-binding Personal Information Security Specification. The Draft Measures were published just over a year after the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in the EU and certain similarities between the two regimes are apparent.
