[Webinar] ABLI-FPF seminar during PDPC's Personal Data Protection Week 2021
Hot on the heels of ABLI's collaboration with the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF), the FPF, in collaboration with Singapore’s Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) and us, is holding a seminar on Exploring Trends: From "Consent-centric" Frameworks to Responsible Data Practices and Privacy Accountability in Asia Pacific as part of the event line-up during this year's Personal Data Protection Week from 14 to 17 September.
In Asia like elsewhere, obtaining the user's consent has long been considered the basis of any regulatory and compliance approach to data protection. Today, this approach is called into question, and alternatives exist which hold many promises. This seminar brings together some of the best regional experts who will identify the challenges posed by the extensive use of notice & consent in Asia Pacific. They will analyse existing alternatives like "legitimate interests" or similar concepts, and explore the diversity of solutions that policymakers may use to create a sustainable balance between accountability and individual protection in APAC.
This seminar will include the following two sessions and be held from 2pm to 4pm (SGT) on 16 September:
2:15pm – Panel 1: Switching from a consent-centric approach to privacy accountability: a comparative view of APAC data protection laws
3:00pm – Panel 2: Shaping choices in the digital world: how consent can become meaningful again
