   Online Regulation: Going its Own Way

  网络监管:自行其道

  China's new Cyber-security law overreaches.

  中国新的网络安全法规有些管的太宽。

  “If you want to stay in China, you have to go all in.” So says James Fitzsimmons of Control Risks, a consultancy, of the impact China's new cyber-security law will have on multinational companies (MNCs).

  在化险咨询公司的顾问詹姆斯·菲茨西蒙斯看来,中国网络安全法对跨国公司的影响是,“要想留在中国市场,必须全力以赴!”

  These firms have moaned for months about the law's intrusive and vague provisions andasked for a delay in its implementation, but to no avail.

  跨国公司因为其中笼统且极具干扰性的条例哀叹数月,纷纷要求推迟实施网络安全法,然却未果。

  It came into force on June 1st, and foreign firms are now scrambling to figure out itsimplications.

  网络安全法于6月1号正式生效,现在外企正急于弄清其影响。

  Mr Fitzsimmons, for one, is convinced that they must take the costly step of separating theirlocal IT systems from their global networks.

  其中,詹姆斯·菲茨西蒙斯确信这些外企定将重金解除其当地信息系统与其全球网络的关联。

  At first blush, the law seems a reasonable effort at tackling two areas of policy in need ofreform.

  乍一看来,安全法似乎合理解决了政策中的两方面需要改革的问题。

  The first is cyber-security.

  一方面是网络安全问题。

  Companies in industries deemed to be critical must now ensure that their technology systemsare “secure and controllable.”

  向来至关重要的工业企业,现在必须确保其技术体系“安全、可控”。

  They must store important data locally, and will be subject to audits by official inspectors.

  他们必须将重要数据存储于境内,接受政府检查员审查。

  Susan Ning of King & Wood Mallesons, a Chinese law firm, thinks that foreign firms shouldbe familiar with such rules since, on her firm's analysis, European regulations on cyber-security are tighter than those found in the new law.

  来自中国金杜律师事务所的苏珊·宁认为,就其公司所做分析看来,欧洲比中国在网络安全法方面要求更为严苛,外企应早已深谙此类律法。

  The other neglected area taken on by this law is data privacy.

  安全法承担的另一个被忽视的领域则是数据隐私问题。

  Firms in China have long amassed and manipulated consumer data as they have pleased.

  长期以来,在华企业十分满意于可以大量收集使用顾客信息。

  And as Ronald Cheng of O'Melveny, an American law firm, observes, online fraud, malware andmobile-phone scams are rife.

  美国美迈斯律师事务所的罗纳德·程认为,网络诈骗、网络恶意软件、手机欺诈十分猖獗。

  Under the new rules, companies must be much more careful with data about, or acquired from, individuals in China.

  但在网络安全法的保护下,在中国,一旦涉及个人信息,各公司将不得不小心应对。

  They are required to maintain such data on local servers, and must obtain permission beforesending bulk data abroad.

  政府要求各公司将这些数据保存至本地服务器,且向境外输送大数据前须获得同意。

  However reasonable these goals seem, two big worries linger.

  然而,无论这些目的看似有多合理,都存在两方面担忧。

  First, the law is overly broad and mischievously vague.

  首先,该法过于宽泛模糊。

  It provides little guidance on what constitutes “critical information infrastructure” (thoughimpact on “social or economic well-being” is a criterion) and which firms are “networkoperators” (so even individuals with multiple computers could fall foul of the law).

  并未具体明确“关键信息基础设施”(即使“社会福利或经济福利”的影响可视作标准),也未明确指出哪类公司才算是“网络运营商”(所以即使拥有多台电脑的个人也会与法律冲突)。

  Kenneth Jarrett, head of the American Chamber ofCommerce in Shanghai, argues that the law's far-reaching restrictions could harm both foreign firmsand cross-border trade.

  上海美国商会领事季瑞达·贾勒特认为,就长远看来,这项法律的局限性不利于外企和跨国贸易的发展。

  The law's ambiguity is forcing MNCs in manyindustries to reconsider how they hold data, and Chinese consumers may pay the price.

  网络安全法的不明确,迫使许多跨国工业公司重新考虑如何保留信息,而中国用户可能要为此付出代价。

  A foreign firm used to monitor its energy turbines in China from its headquarters, using its real-time global data to optimise operations;

  过去,外企只需在总部监管其在中国的用户信息,利用实时全局数据来优化操作;

  it now keeps the Chinese information on the mainland, efficiency be damned.

  现在,要是将中国用户的数据信息存储在中国境内,效率就会大打折扣。

 

  A provider of global online education was sending data on Chinese users overseas to allowthem to access its courses abroad;

  过去,环球在线教育的供应商将中国用户的数据输送到海外,以便这些用户接受其海外课程;

  it is now rejigging its IT system to keep such data inside China and may have to curtail itsofferings.

  现在,供应商调整了信息系统,将此类数据保留至中国,或者说是不得不减少输送。

  The second big worry about the new law is that it may be a Trojan horse designed to promoteChina's aggressive policy of indigenous innovation.

  其次,网络安全法可能是中国式的特洛伊木马――为提升本土创新能力的侵袭政策。

  This push has already led Microsoft, an American software giant,

  这一推动已经使得美国软件龙头公司微软,

  to enter into a local joint venture and reveal its source code to officials in order to sell alocal version of its Windows 10 operating system.

  为出售中国版Windows10操作系统,与当地企业合资,将其源代码告知中国行政人员。

  Other foreign technology firms fret that they will be forced to divulge intellectual propertyto government inspectors,

  而国外其它科技公司还在忧心,必须要将知识产权告知于政府监管人员的同时,

  with no guarantees that such secrets will not be passed on to local rivals.

  却无法保证这些机密不会泄露到当地竞争者手里。

  They are right to worry, say legal experts.

  法学专家认为,这些公司的担忧并非毫无道理的。

  Officials may also decide that certain foreign services do not pass the nebulous test of beingsecure and controllable.

  行政人员或许还决定了,某些国外服务无法达到所谓安全可控的检测要求。

  This uncertainty is already boosting the fortunes of such local vendors as Huawei and Lenovo, makers of servers and other hardware,

  这种不可控因素已提升了华为和联想、服务商与其他硬件制造商等本土供应商的机遇,

  as well as Tencent and Alibaba, both of whom are making a big push into cloud services.

  包括腾讯和阿里巴巴在内,大小企业都在大举进军云服务领域。

  Informed sources say these firms have had a hand in crafting the new law.

  据知情人士说,正是这些公司参与了网络安全法的起草。

  The local champions should not celebrate quite yet.

  但是本土公司要庆祝胜利还为时尚早。

  As Mr Cheng observes, China's best technology companies are increasingly active abroad, andso they too will need to harness international flows of consumer data in the future.

  罗纳德·程提出,中国的科技巨擎在海外的发展蒸蒸日上,未来也需用到用户数据跨境流动。

  A law that seems rigged in favour of locals ultimately may end up harming both Chinese firmsand consumers.

  看似支持当地企业的法律最终或影响到中国企业与用户。
