This week on Serious Privacy, Paul Breitbarth and K Royal revisit the Chinese Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) that goes into effect just a few days after the publication of this episode.

K and I spoke about this law already in episode 30 of this season, dated 31 August 2021, as well as during our webinar on 15 September 2021.

However, questions keep flooding in, so we decided to record a follow-up episode.

Limited Guidance from China

The PIPL guidance coming out of China is still limited, although the Cyberspace Administration of China’s main regulator is starting to publish some explanatory documents.

In this episode, we are joined by Graham Webster.

Graham is a Research Scholar at the Stanford Cyber Policy Center, as well as Editor in Chief of the university’s DigiChina website, a great resource providing lots of translations of China’s digital laws and policy documents.

He is an expert on issues at the intersection of U.S.–China relations and advanced technology, and we are very happy he is joining us.

This week’s episode can be streamed below.
