United States-based lawyer Dan Harris, a founding partner of Seattle international law firm Harris Sliwoski and co-author of the China Law Blog, said that the new law was “more of a change in degree than brand new things”

But he added uncertainties remained and that businesses were unclear on how to handle confidential information under the domestic legislation.

Harris said there were also concerns over liability for unintentional national security breaches.
