Web Conference: How to Fix the Notice and Consent Model for the APAC Region

Original broadcast date: 1 November 2021

Part of IAPP ANZ Summit Online 2021 web series.

In this web conference, speakers discuss an ongoing data privacy project led jointly by the Asian Business Law Institute (ABLI) and the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) focusing on “Notice & Choice, Consent, and other Legal Bases for Processing Personal Data in Asian Data Protection Laws”. The project aims to advance the discussions which are currently growing on the limitations of “notice and choice” and “consent” and the need for suggesting improvements and offering alternatives in jurisdictions where a baseline data protection or privacy law applies. This topic is addressed differently in different countries, and some jurisdictions do not yet have data protection laws in place. The project has been informed by the experiences of multiple contributors from different fields of expertise and countries, including data protection authorities. In this panel session, project leader Dr Clarisse Girot (ABLI, FPF), and contributors Peter Leonard (Data Synergies) and Daimhin Warner (Simply Privacy) discuss the preliminary findings of extensive research and collaboration and next steps. It is hoped that this research, and the panel session, will assist privacy professionals and regulators in the region to better understand and apply meaningful alternatives to consent as a legal basis to process personal data.
