South Korea's Naver shifts data from Hong Kong to Singapore

Internet company move follows China's enforcement of national security law

Naver offers a variety of internet services, including search engines. 

SEOUL -- South Korea's internet giant Naver has moved users' personal data from backup servers in Hong Kong to Singapore as the Chinese government tightens its grip on Hong Kong with the enforcement of a new national security law.

The company began transferring the data earlier in July and said it has deleted all data stored in Hong Kong. The data is managed by the company's data-center subsidiary, Naver Business Platform.
