09/08/2023 | NISSTC

China's National Information Security Standardization Technical Committee has opened a consultation for a draft cybersecurity national standard: the Information Security Technology - Security Requirements for Processing of Sensitive Personal Information. The draft standard focuses on the importance of obtaining individual consent for processing sensitive personal information and ensuring that such processing has a specific purpose. The standard also requires various measures to be taken when processing sensitive personal information, including collection, storage, use, processing, transmission, disclosure, protection and deletion. In addition, the standard addresses consent and safety management requirements, along with specific types of sensitive personal information, such as biometric data, financial data, and health information.

The consultation closes on 8 October.
