According to the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), there has been an increase in cyber-attacks in the time of COVID-19. Meanwhile, a well-known airline company has been fined £500,000 by the UK's Information Commissioner's Office for security lapses which exposed the personal details of some 9.4 million customers globally from 2014- 2018.

In light of recent personal data privacy breaches, Hong Kong Government's Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau recently proposed six amendments to the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (Cap. 486).

These amendments make references to the EU General Data Protection Regulation, requiring data users to timely report data breaches and authorising the Privacy Commissioner to impose fines based on annual turnover of data users.

Technological advancements in recent years have given a new meaning to the processing and use of information. It also raises awareness of privacy protection, the demand for an effective data privacy regulatory structure as well as data security controls.

In this webinar, we will share our knowledge on:

  • Proposed amendments to Personal Data

  • (Privacy) Ordinance (Cap. 486)

  • Sanction powers to PCPD

  • Retention period

  • Mandatory breach notification

  • Regulatory risks

  • Compliance costs for the business sector should these amendments take effect

  • Data security impact assessments

  • Technical security measures and cybersecurity awareness

We hope that this webinar will help you to understand more about development of data privacy as well as data security controls.
