75 Percent of Legal Technology Professionals Are Not Familiar with China’s new Cybersecurity Law, Consilio Survey Finds

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--According to a survey conducted by Consilio, a global leader in eDiscovery, document review and legal consulting services, 75 percent of legal technology professionals cited that they are not familiar with China’s new Cybersecurity Law, which was passed into law in December 2016. Furthermore, only 14 percent of respondents indicated that they are “very concerned” about this new law.



China’s new Cybersecurity Law, which will take effect in June 2017, will require foreign companies conducting business in the country to localize their data within mainland China which may contain sensitive privacy data or state secrets. Organizations that do not adhere to this provision will face potential financial penalties, including the possible loss of their ability to conduct business in mainland China. Individuals can face civil and criminal penalties, up to and including imprisonment and the death penalty for particularly egregious cases.

“China is now the world’s second largest economy, and for global corporations and those that aspire to be global, it is critical for them to have a full understanding of the data requirements and regulatory landscape of that region,” said Dan Whitaker, Managing Director of Consilio’s China operations, headquartered in Shanghai. “Since 2012, cyber walls have been going up in multiple regions around the world, and as countries continue to create new regulations, organizations must continually educate themselves on the quickly evolving nuances of data privacy laws in every jurisdiction, specifically as it relates to the ability to move data in and out of the countries in question.”

In addition, a majority of survey respondents (57 percent) indicated having at least one legal matter that touched China within the last two years (i.e. internal or government investigations, litigation, M&A, etc.). Meanwhile, more than a quarter of respondents (27 percent) said they knew of at least ten Chinese legal matters that their organizations were involved in over the same period.

Additional Survey Findings

In addition to China’s new Cybersecurity Law, when polled about other international compliance laws their organizations are most concerned about, respondents identified the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, or FCPA as the most concerning (40 percent), with the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR (22 percent) and the UK Bribery Act (8 percent) as other regulations on their mind.

Despite limited knowledge about China’s new Cybersecurity Law, one-third of legal technology professionals said their organizations have at least 26 legal resources and/or individuals dedicated to compliance of international data privacy regulations.

Survey Methodology

The survey of 118 legal technology professionals, from in-house law departments, law firms and government affiliated entities, was conducted by Consilio at the Legalweek | Legaltech® New York 2017 conference held January 31 – February 2, 2017.

Statement by Oasis Management Company Ltd. Regarding the Upcoming Extraordinary General Meetings at Yingde Gases Group Company Limited (HKEx Stock Code: 2168)

HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oasis Management Company Ltd. (“Oasis”) is the manager to a private investment fund (“Oasis Fund”) that is the beneficial owner of approximately 4.5% of the outstanding shares of Yingde Gases Group Company Limited (“Yingde” or “the Company”) (HKEx Stock Code: 2168), making the Oasis Fund one of the largest minority shareholders of the Company. Oasis has adopted the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (“SFC”) “Principles of Responsible Ownership” (a/k/a Hong Kong Stewardship Code) and in line with those principles, Oasis monitors and engages with our investee companies.


As a shareholder of Yingde, we have been actively following the current dispute between the group lead by current Chairman Zhao Xiangti and the group lead by Sun Zhongguo and Trevor Strutt. Both groups have made numerous public statements including a commitment to run a process to consider strategic alternatives including a possible sale of the company. As a minority shareholder of Yingde Gases, we are strongly in favor of a robust strategic alternative process that would maximize the value to all shareholders. However, this process must be run with genuine intent to maximize value for all shareholders in order for minority shareholders to make an educated decision with their holdings.

As such, after the completion of both EGMs on March 8, 2017, and regardless of the ultimate outcome (including a Board led by either Zhao Xiangti, Sun Zhongguo and Trevor Strutt, or a fully independent Board as recommended by ISS), Oasis will look to have an independent representative on the newly constituted Board. This would be done to observe the Board and ensure the process to consider such strategic alternatives is run efficiently and effectively. This is also consistent with ISS’s emphasis on the importance of the independence of the Board. This new independent director would add value through his/her experience in the financial markets while also providing a fresh and different perspective overseeing the process through his/her independence from any existing Directors. We believe that such an independent representative will be in the best interests of all shareholders.

For all inquiries, please contact Phillip Meyer at pmeyer@hk.oasiscm.com.

Oasis Management Company Ltd. manages private investment funds focused on opportunities in a wide array of asset classes across countries and sectors. Oasis was founded in 2002 by Seth Fischer, who leads the firm as its Chief Investment Officer. More information about Oasis is available at https://oasiscm.com.

Nutanix Enables TAL Apparel Limited to Embrace IT Transformation with Simplicity and Scalability

Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform Reduces Power and Rack Space Costs by 62 Percent

HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced the celebration of a one-year collaboration with the global garment manufacturing giant, TAL Apparel Limited (TAL Apparel). By adopting the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, TAL Apparel is able to embrace IT transformation, significantly reducing time required for IT infrastructure management, and focus more resources on leading innovations in garment manufacturing.

Headquartered in Hong Kong with 11 factories across Asia, TAL Apparel found it difficult for its legacy IT infrastructure for business critical applications to keep up with the pace of its business expansion in Asia. Complex issues in IT infrastructure and shortage of skilled IT talent in local markets made it challenging for TAL Apparel to maintain operations of their IT facilities in new factories located in Asian high-growth markets such as Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam. To enhance operational efficiency and support further business expansion, TAL Apparel began identifying vendors to transform their IT operations and embrace a simple, yet scalable IT infrastructure.

“With years of experience deploying legacy infrastructures in multiple markets, we believe that web-scale, hyperconvergence and cloud-like infrastructure should be our way moving forward. As we expand our footprint across a number of growth markets, IT infrastructures at our corporate offices and off-site locations must operate with both simplicity and scalability in order to ensure efficiency and give us peace of mind. The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform enabled us to evolve past our legacy IT infrastructure and scale out anytime, anywhere.” said Mr. Kai Kiang, Vice President, Information Technology of TAL Apparel Limited. With the deployment of Nutanix solutions, all existing applications, including the JBoss application server on Linux, Apache webserver, IBM WebSphere application server, IBM DB2 and file server, as well as network services including Windows Active Directory, DHCP and DNS servers were successfully migrated to the new platform.

Significant savings on resources

Having deployed the Nutanix solutions at the corporate offices in Hong Kong and factories in eight countries across Asia over the past year, TAL Apparel was able to reduce the time needed for day-to-day infrastructure management by 65 percent, mainly from the provisioning, as well as backup and restoring of virtual machines. Moreover, by adopting Nutanix, the overall rack space is reduced by 82 percent. Within one year of adopting Nutanix solutions, TAL Apparel was able to lower power consumption by 72 percent, achieving an overall reduction of power and rack space costs of 62 percent. TAL Apparel’s IT administrators were also able to leverage one-click non-disruptive upgrades and preventive alerts from Nutanix, enabling them to reduce overall operating costs and time spent on constant manual supervision across different locations.

“We are thrilled to partner with TAL Apparel to help enhance operational efficiency over the past year. Nutanix is committed to supporting TAL Apparel’s continuous growth with our enterprise cloud solutions, bringing more value to their IT environment. Our enterprise cloud offerings not only allow TAL Apparel and other customers to embrace the evolution of next generation enterprise IT infrastructures with ease, our solutions also enable easy, non-disruptive upgrades and automatic dispatch of preventive alerts to ensure operational efficiency,” said Edward Yeung, Managing Director, Hong Kong and Taiwan, Nutanix.

“As a company that operates 24/7 globally, we appreciate the opportunity to be able to address any system failures or corruptions before they even happen. With Nutanix, we are able to design a combined compute and storage infrastructure mitigating single point of system failures or corruptions, simplify the setup and management for both local and corporate IT staffs. Nutanix is very compatible with other legacy technology and applications, allowing a smooth and trouble-free transition. Their pay-as-you-grow purchasing model also allows us to plan resources more effectively and scale out with ease,” Kiang added.

メットライフ、米国の保険会社として初めてカーボンニュートラルを達成

ニューヨーク--(BUSINESS WIRE)--(ビジネスワイヤ) -- メットライフ(NYSE:MET)は本日、米国を拠点とする保険会社として初めて2015年のカーボンニュートラルの目標を達成したと発表しました。


メットライフは、当社の世界の業務全体に持続可能性とエネルギー効率に関する最優良事例を統合し、世界中の炭素削減プロジェクトへの投資を通じて残りの排出量を相殺することでカーボンニュートラルを達成しました。

メットライフ・グローバル・テクノロジー&オペレーションズ責任者のマーティー・リッパート執行副社長は、次のように述べています。「メットライフは、責任ある企業市民として世界の事業全体で健全な環境スチュワードシップを推進すべく努めています。持続可能な事業戦略は、当社の環境影響を低減するだけでなく、私たちの企業としての在り方も強調しています。」

メットライフの業務全体に持続可能性を取り入れる活動の例は、次の通りです。

  • メットライフのワシントンDCのオフィスとノースカロライナ州ケアリーのグローバル・テクノロジー・キャンパスがエネルギーと環境設計に関するリーダーシップ(LEED)プラチナ認証を取得。メットライフの世界19カ所のオフィスがLEED認証を取得しており(不動産として約400万平方フィートに相当)、そのうち6カ所はプラチナ認証を取得。
  • 米国に所有するオフィスと営業所全体で約30パーセントのエネルギーを削減。
  • トップサプライヤーと協力し、それら組織のサプライチェーンを通じて環境影響を低減。
  • 37カ所の風力・太陽光発電所の権益取得、48カ所のLEED認証不動産の株式取得、再生可能エネルギープロジェクトへの30億ドルの投資を含め、97億ドルのグリーン投資を実施。

これらの活動は2015年に確立した当社の世界的な環境目標の中核要素で、それは次の通りです。

1. 2016年以降はカーボンニュートラルを実現。

2. 2020年までにすべてのエネルギー消費量を2012年比で10パーセント削減。

3. 2020年までにロケーションベースの温室効果ガス(GHG)排出量を2012年比で10パーセント削減。

4. 2020年までにメットライフのトップサプライヤー100社にGHG排出量と排出削減活動の開示を義務付ける。

メットライフの環境への取り組みは、自社の拠点を超えて広がっています。残りの炭素排出量の相殺を進めるために、当社は第三者が認定した持続可能な開発をサポートする6つの炭素削減プロジェクトを支援しています。その例は次の通りです。

  • 中国の家庭で石炭火力を利用した調理から100%再生可能エネルギーへの切り替えを支援する太陽光発電を利用したコンロの設置活動。
  • コロンビアの熱帯雨林を保護する森林減少・劣化からの排出削減(REDD+)プロジェクト。この活動は、熱帯雨林保護と皆伐やその他の非持続可能な農業慣行の低減を支援。
  • 米国では、メットライフはニューヨーク州最大の非有害廃棄物施設からの排ガスを捉え、そのガスをクリーンエネルギーに変換するプロジェクトを支援。

メットライフの環境目標に対する進捗状況は、環境影響の低減に向けた当社の長年にわたる取り組みを反映しています。メットライフのこの分野に関する実績で最近評価を受けたのは、次の通りです。

  • 気候変動問題の報告・管理のリーダーシップが評価され、CDP(旧カーボン・ディスクロージャー・プロジェクト)から表彰される。CDPは、5000社以上の環境実績に関する活動を評価する非営利団体。
  • 持続可能性を重視する大手企業を追跡する企業持続可能性指数の2016年北米ダウ・ジョーンズ・サステナビリティ・インデックスに選ばれる。
  • 当社が新たに設定した大胆な温室効果ガス排出削減目標が評価され、米環境保護庁から2016年気候リーダーシップ賞を受賞。
