[CANCELLED] [Webinar] Latest Data Protection and Privacy Developments in Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines
[UPDATE] This webinar has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control. We hope to work out a new date with all the speakers in due course. Thank you for all of your support.
ASEAN has become a focal point in the development of data protection laws in APAC, where a new generation of tech entrepreneurs, vibrant start-up scene, leading BPO industries, unicorns, local fintech solutions and health data hubs are learning to ride the shockwave of GDPR.
Major data protection reform is underway in Malaysia and the Philippines, the first countries that adopted data protection laws in the region. In addition, Indonesia’s framework is undergoing a massive overhaul, with a Data Protection Bill finally introduced in Parliament earlier this year.
What are the challenges of working across multiple data protection regimes in ASEAN?
What is the reality of enforcement, what are the major changes to expect in those three key countries? As ASEAN is stepping up cooperation in data protection, is convergence really on the agenda?
Listen to top experts who will explain all you need to know to navigate this landscape, today and tomorrow:
· Key features of the current data protection frameworks, regulatory priorities and challenges in implementation;
· Trends in data localisation;
· Timeline of reforms and key changes ahead: legal basis for processing, data breach notification, status of processors, minors’ data, mandatory appointment of DPOs, data portability and right to erasure, data transfers, classification of sensitive information, etc.;
· All about the regulators: their structure and powers, whether regulatory priorities and approaches to enforcement change; and what we can expect from the stepping up of cooperation networks.
