Web Conference: Data Protection Legal Update: Hong Kong and China

Original Broadcast Date:  June 16, 2016

If your organization is doing business in Hong Kong or China that involves the use and transfer of personal information, you should be aware that varying regulations and laws govern this data use. Hong Kong has a well established law and active regulatory body in place, and failure to comply with an enforcement notice is considered a criminal offense which can result in fines and even imprisonment. While China has no comprehensive data protection regulation currently in force, a draft cyber-security law is making its way through the legislative process, and in the meantime, provisions of a number of other existing regulations are applicable to data use and transfer.

Join us to hear these compliance requirements explained in detail, as well as discussion on existing and emerging data protection rules in other Asian countries.
