China draft cyber law mandates security assessment for outbound data

BEIJING China’s top cyber authority on Tuesday released a draft law that would require firms exporting data to undergo an annual security assessment, in the latest of several recent safeguards against threats such as hacking and terrorism.

Any business transferring data of over 1000 gigabytes or affecting over 500,000 users will be assessed on its security measures and on the potential of the data to harm national interests, showed the draft from the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC).

The law would ban the export of any economic, technological or scientific data whose transfer would pose a threat to security or public interests . It would also require firms to obtain the consent of users before transmitting data abroad.

The proposed law, which focuses on personal information security, comes just a day after state media reported government rewards of $1,500 to $73,000 for citizens who report suspected spies.

It is also an extension of legislation passed in November formalizing a range of controls over firms that handle data in industries the government deems critical to national interests.

Business groups have criticized the November law, which is effective from June, calling rules “vague” and claiming they unfairly target foreign companies with stringent requirements.

Chinese officials denied that the November law targets foreign firms.

Under the rules released on Tuesday, sensitive geographic data such as information on marine environments would also be subject to scrutiny . Destination countries and the likelihood of oversees tampering would also be factored in to any assessments.

The draft is open for public comment until May 11.

Security staff banned from wearing Union flag badges

Security guards at the Bristol Royal Infirmary have been banned from wearing the Union Jack on their stab vests . It is understood that the staff had been wearing the badges for the past two months. They are like those sold in aid of Care of Police Survivors1, a charity which helps families of police officers who have died while on duty . They are becoming more common following the death of PC Keith Palmer in the Westminster attack. The 12 members of staff, employed by the NHS, had received an e-mail telling them to no longer wear the flags on their uniforms.

ITV News approached the Trust that runs the BRI and it issued the following statement. We were contacted recently by a member of the public who saw security officers at the Bristol Royal Infirmary wearing union jack flag patches on their uniforms . The member of the public commended the security staff on how well they dealt with a difficult incident and asked about a union jack patch that they had on their uniforms as they had not seen it before on an NHS uniform.

Our Trust policy says that uniforms cannot be altered or personalised and that only professional badge adornments are permitted . Security staff were therefore reminded of this and asked to remove any non-authorised badges or symbols from their uniforms . We also shared with them the compliment from the member of public.
