In an unprecedented move, China has taken decisive action against personal data breaches, closing a staggering number of cases while also unveiling draft laws to regulate facial recognition technology. Over the past three years, Chinese law enforcement has effectively shut down 36,000 instances of personal data violations, leading to the detention of 64,000 suspects, as per the Ministry of Public Security. These efforts are part of a broader initiative launched in 2020 to govern online activities, resulting in the seizure of more than 30 million SIM cards and 300 million “illegal” internet accounts.
