Cybersecurity Law Audit Related to Carsharing Software

25 January 2019

Leaf and its technical partner TekID have assisted a French provider of hardware and software solution operating car-hailing platforms in the structuring of its activities to collect and process, either directly or indirectly, data and personal information from the users during the provision of services to its clients.

The study has helped the client to define the feasibility and the structure of the operations to avoid potential illegality of the contemplated activities for a non-resident company.

This review has helped the software provider to define carefully contractual relationship with Chinese providers and the allocation of liabilities.

A technical audit has also helped to make sure that the data reports may be sent off-shore after being sufficiently encrypted with enough security safeguards and checked potential security breach that would put at risks real-time geographical position of Chinese citizen with the real time fleet management tool.
