See Gartner report (ID Number: G00205633) from 2010: Managing Data Protection in the People's Republic of China. It is dated, but much of it is relevant. There’s likely newer advice from Gartner.

But the bottom line is that employees have to be very, very, very careful in China.

Get advice from legal if and when you can use encryption, use a VPN, etc.

And assume all data on the device will be seen and downloaded by the PRC.

By far the best place for me to travel was Shanghai. Loved the city and the vibe. Singapore is also an amazing place to have to be stationed for work.

We capture it as part of our permissions services. We don’t call out every single group policy but do for the majority and have a catch all for the general service as part of permissions.
