The new China Cybersecurity Law has rattled multinationals and local companies alike, deeming the Law ‘onerous’ and ‘vague’ without clear guidelines on who exactly is captured and what is covered.

With three internet giants under investigation and two issued warnings, how can businesses avoid serious enforcement actions and establish well-defined guidelines and criteria to comply with the Law?
