Shanghai to issue new data vision

Shanghai will soon publish a data usage policy after hearing public submissions, to improve urban management and boost the city’s digital transformation.

China is developing data rating and classification methods in line with coming data security and personal information laws to improve data usage efficiency and ensure data security, experts told a China Cybersecurity Week forum yesterday.

The city is going to release an official Shanghai data usage policy with 10 chapters and 91 detailed lines, with one chapter specifically on data security, Zhu Zongyao, the center’s chairman, told the forum.

The government-backed center released a draft to hear public opinions.

Data has become “a new production factor, a basic and strategic resource.”

With the new policy, Shanghai can manage public data resources from different bureaus in a unified network, Zhu said. Through confirming “data rights” and how to use them, the policy will help the city improve digital management and boost innovation.
