China's Personal Information Protection Law raises some novel compliance challenges for universities, vendors, and other controllers in a range of industries. While the PIPL shares many similarities with the GDPR and other global privacy laws, it diverges from this standard in a number of key ways. This session will provide an examination of the major differences between the PIPL and the GDPR to better help compliance officers modify their global privacy programs and better situate how privacy experts should approach the law. It will also identify minor differences and nuances with the GDPR as well as explain key enforcement trends and lessons for companies on China's unique administrative and regulatory system.
