Information security and compliance

Similar to the U.S. Privacy Shield framework and the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), China’s Cybersecurity Law (2017) has deeply impacted the regulatory environment and increased the factors that need to be considered when doing business in China. We highly recommend customers study relevant laws in detail to get best understanding of the regulations in your market segment.
"Global customer journey in China" shares our understanding about the regulatory environment and recommendations customers might want to take into account. ICP and MLPS are the two most common requirements, hence, we provide details of what they are and what we can support you in those two subjects.
Last but not least, when you use AWS regions, you already meet the data residency requirement. AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS) is now available in China regions, which will make you rest assured that you already meet Crypto requirements. And China regions' MLPS 2.0 level 3 certified to proof your application are MLPS certified.
