In parts one and two of this miniseries for The Privacy Advisor Podcast on the plague that is robocalls, host Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, examined the problem from the U.S. and U.K. perspectives. In short, the U.S. continues to fight an uphill battle on the Federal Communications Commission's number-one consumer complaint, despite levying heavy fines against offenders, while the U.K. has seen a decline in complaints since it started issuing fines. In Hong Kong, a loophole exists in which it is difficult for the privacy commissioner for personal data to enforce. In part three of this series, PCPD Stephen Wong discusses his office's approach to the problem, what his office needs in order to be more effective, and what he does when he himself receives a robocall.
