At the meeting, Julian shared the latest news in data cross-border policies, allowing attendees to have a deeper understanding of related policies. As the world's attention to data protection continues to increase, different countries and regions have formulated relevant policies and regulations within their respective scopes. On September 28th, the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) released the "Regulations on the Norms and Promotion of Cross-border Data Transmission", which clearly defines the scope of application, basic principles, regulatory measures, illegal acts of cross-border data transferal. Among them, it is stipulated that cross-border data must comply with laws and regulations, and cannot endanger national security and public interests, guaranteeing the security and compliance of cross-border data transmission.


For the issue of data cross-border, Julian provided corresponding solutions. He pointed out that in order to better respond to cross-border data issues, enterprises need to consider the path of data export, understand the laws and regulations of the target country or region, and ensure that data transmission is compliant. At the same time, adopting advanced and standardized operation data security systems can ensure the security of data during transmission and storage. In addition, enterprises also need to consider the process and plan for compliance declaration, ensuring effective compliance with the legal requirements for data cross-border security and privacy protection.


Through this meeting, participants expressed their willingness to strengthen their attention to data cross-border, take stricter control and security measures to protect the security and privacy of data. Next, the HKCNSA will continue to organize and promote various related activities, actively promote the development and application of network security technologies, and build a stable and reliable network security environment.
