Following the release of the 15th draft of the Law on Cybersecurity in January, the National Assembly recently published the 16th draft ("Draft Law") on its website for public consultation. Please follow this link to see our past client alerts on the previous drafts.
The Draft Law, in comparison with the 15th draft, has further updated the local offices and data localization requirements for offshore telecommunications and Internet service providers. The Draft Law remains largely the same in other respects.
The notable updates are as below:
- Stricter local office and data localization requirements (Article 28); and
- Cross-border data transfer restriction (Article 42).
