Without cybersecurity legislation that strikes a proper balance between security and development, information and communication technology (ICT) cannot play the increasingly pivotal role in both the economy and society that it needs to. This applies to both the procurement of network products and services, and the handling of data, which makes cybersecurity a top priority in today’s interconnected world.

China re-emphasised the importance of cybersecurity with its upgrade, in March 2018, of the Central Leading Group for Cybersecurity and Informatisation to the Office of the Central Cyberspace Affairs Commission, also known as the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC).1 Under the CAC’s leadership, relevant government agencies are conducting regulatory work within their respective areas.

In view of the increasingly strengthened Chinese regulatory environment, in February 2016, the Cybersecurity Sub-working Group was established under the European Chamber’s Information and Communication Technology Working Group. This sub-working group is comprised of world-leading European companies from a wide range of industries concerned about China’s cybersecurity policies.

The Cybersecurity Sub-working Group focuses on cybersecurity legislation, standardisation and enforcement that will impact a series of industries. It hopes to engage people on these subjects by issuing carefully crafted position papers, holding meetings with government agencies, and working increasingly with other stakeholders including industry associations, chambers of commerce, think tanks and independent experts.
