NEWS FOR LAWYERS AND SOURCING PROFESSIONALS
With high-profile ransomware attacks occurring over the last few months, cybersecurity is back on the agenda in Washington, DC. We invite you to an upcoming webinar during which Morgan Lewis partners Ezra Church, Kristin Hadgis, and Daniel Skees will review recent actions taken by the Biden-Harris administration to address cybersecurity threats to critical infrastructure and to enhance the protection of sensitive data. They will also consider how the administration’s approach could affect future regulatory initiatives.
As a reminder, China’s new Data Security Law (DSL), which entails more expansive and restrictive requirements on data localization, mandatory security level certification, and severe penalties for unauthorized foreign transfer of data, will come into effect on September 1, 2021. The DSL will potentially affect all business operators in China, including multinational corporations. Our privacy and cybersecurity team recently published a more detailed analysis of the DSL. If you have any specific questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to your Morgan Lewis contact for assistance.
