SEAChange Issue II: December 2021

Our second issue focuses on a varied set of regional updates, cutting across areas of data protection, cybersecurity, and the environment. Data protection and cybersecurity concerns remain a focus of legislators and enforcement agencies across Asia.

In this issue we cover:

  • Challenges and implications for corporates in handling cross-border investigations with a nexus to China as a result of China’s new Personal Information Protection Law;
  • The impact of Thailand’s newly-issued notification on private entities pursuant to its Cyber Security Act;
  • The hefty compliance requirements arising from India’s Data Protection Bill which has been inspired by the EU’s GDPR; and
  • Indonesian courts taking a tougher stance in holding the government and its representatives liable for environmental failures.
