Cyber security in Chile

https://export-help.business.gov.au/wizard/summary/cyber-security/chile

Opportunities in Chile

Chile has the highest rate of internet access in Latin America with 70% of the population online. To protect citizens, business and government operations a Chilean cyber security policy has recently been introduced.

This policy roadmap has five objectives to achieve by 2022:

  1.  a robust and resilient information infrastructure 
  2.  to protect the rights of its citizens in cyberspace 
  3. to develop a cyber security culture 
  4. to establish cooperative international cyber security relationships  
  5. to promote a cyber security industry that can help achieve Chilean strategic objectives.

Key opportunity: protection of mining infrastructure

Given the importance of the mining industry to Chile’s economy, the government regards it as an area of critical infrastructure. The rapid rate of digital transformation of the mining sector, and Australia and Chile’s shared interests in this industry, presents potential opportunities for existing Australian solutions, or for collaboration on the new solution development.

This type of opportunity is also applicable to other critical infrastructure systems, networks and assets.

Setting up in China

Finding a partner is often key in the aged care market in China.

International aged care service providers who want to operate in China generally need to go through three steps to set up their business. You will often need to complete these at the city level of government and administration.

  1. Apply for a Certificate of Approval of Enterprises with Foreign Investment in China through commerce authorities of Chinese municipal or provincial governments. For example, visit the Beijing Municipal Commerce Bureau (information in simplified Chinese)
  2. Apply for a business licence at the Industry and Commerce Administrations of Chinese municipal governments
  3. Register as a 'not-for-profit' or 'for-profit' aged service business. You will need to register through the system operated by civil affairs authorities of relevant municipal governments. For example, the Shanghai Civil Affairs Bureau.

Chinese civil affairs and health authorities of municipal governments manage aged care services matters. For example, the Guangzhou Health Bureau (information in simplified Chinese). These matters may include standards, assessment and reviews, qualities and payment. It's important to confirm your specific requirements in your city of operation.

Austrade can refer you to legal and accounting firms who help firms who want to set up in China.

Laws, regulations and data storage

Regulations

Aged care is highly regulated in China. Arrangements can vary by city or province. This means companies should take a regional approach.

For example, under Guangdong’s policies and regulation for aged care (information in simplified Chinese), key agencies managing related services are:

In this example, civil affairs (information in simplified Chinese) manages home and residential aged care services. Civil affairs and health authorities manage residential aged care services, if integrated aged care and medical services are provided.

Both civil affairs and social security authorities manage aged care workforce skill development.

Storing data

It's crucial to check the regulation of data storage in each country that you operate.  

China has strict regulations on the storage and transfer of data. These are evolving rapidly and it's important you speak to a legal adviser with specific knowledge of data regulations in China.  

The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in 2018 and is influencing data regulation around the world.

The Australian Privacy Principles cover the storage of Australian data (both in and outside Australia).

Visas
