Our Most Successful Forum to Date

With sold-out attendance and an impressive panel of speakers, including regulators from around the world, this year’s Forum was by far our most successful. Forum delegates left ready to step up their privacy programmes with hands-on knowledge of:

  • What the GDPR means for Asia
  • Preparing for and executing CBPRs
  • Privacy programme accountability

And much more.

Forum Highlights

  • Regulators from Morocco, New Zealand, the U.S., and Hong Kong presented their views on the Global Privacy Enforcement Network and their efforts to work with companies while still protecting citizens’ rights.
  • Mark Parsons, partner at Hogan Lovells, moderated a panel on privacy issues for financial institutions, digging into data protection regulations and cross-border data transfer issues.
  • Leading APAC experts discussed what the GDPR, the most important data privacy regulation in 20 years, means for Asia.
  • Delegates enjoyed an exceptional networking opportunity at the Flight Bar and Lounge in Singapore’s world-renown Marina Bay Sands hotel.
