- China’s National People’s Congress Standing Committee released the second draft of the Personal Information Protection Law for public comment, according to Stanford University’s DigiChina Cyber Policy Center. The latest draft includes new self-regulatory obligations for online platforms, penalties for sharing data with foreign authorities without permission and enhanced data privacy responsibilities for the Cyberspace Administration of China.
- The Privacy and Personal Information Protection Amendment Bill 2021 was introduced in New South Wales, Australia, which amends the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 to require public sector agencies to notify the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner of a data breach.
- Queensland, Australia, is considering a law that would require companies to report a data breach to the OAIC, ABC News reports. Privacy Commissioner Philip Green said current laws are out of date, adding he recommends the change because “the public expects that my office would be told about a breach, and also that they would be told if it was a serious breach.”
