May's issue of Cyber Security Practitioner

May's edition of Cyber Security Practitioner provides indepth articles on the recent developments impacting the regulation of cyber security across the globe and how the evolving legal landscape for cyber and data security is impacting businesses. 

Highlights of May's issue include a detailed article from Xun Yang, Of Counsel at Simmons and Simmons, analysing the draft of the PRC Cyber Security Law in China, particularly focusing on the controversial requirement that all personal data and other important business data must pass a security assessment procedure before it can be exported for business reasons.

Two articles in this issue consider cyber security in the wake of the WannaCry ransomware attack. Stewart Room, Partner and Global Head of Cyber Security and Data Protection Legal Services at PwC, explores the legal implications and liability issues surrounding such attacks, while Jennifer Agate, Senior Associate at Foot Anstey LLP, provides analysis of the economic and operational impacts that cyber attacks such as WannaCry have had, providing figures from the survey in the UK’s Department for Culture Media and Sport to inform her findings.
