Virtual Event: Privacy Roundtable Part II
November 23, 9:00-11:30 a.m. SGT
Speakers: Eunice Lim, Senior Manager, Policy – APAC, BSA | The Software Alliance and Jared Ragland, Senior Director, Policy – APAC, BSA | The Software Alliance
BSA and NCAPEC host a privacy roundtable with two panels on expanding legal bases for processing personal information and data breach notification. BSA's Jared Ragland moderates the panel discussion on data breach notification, and BSA's Eunice Lim offers closing remarks.
The Asia-Pacific region, as with the rest of the world, is experiencing a rapid evolution of the digital economy, driven by technological innovation, novel business models, and changing interactions between citizens and the Internet-enabled economy, among other factors. As data-intensive technologies and services become more integrated into the daily lives of individual citizens and increasingly foundational to economic growth and competitiveness, economies throughout the Asia-Pacific region are developing or updating personal data protection laws and rules.
While this is a welcome development, it is important that individual economies are aware of, and strive to ensure interoperability with, emerging international norms and practices around core aspects of personal data protection. The emergence of fragmented policies on core issues of data protection not only makes it harder to provide services, especially for under-resourced small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) trying to expand beyond their domestic markets, but ultimately can undermine personal data protection and consumer privacy.
Following the privacy roundtable that was organized by ABAC USA, BSA, and Microsoft on December 17, 2020, there has been keen interest to revitalize discussions that can support regulatory coherence in APEC. NCAPEC and BSA are pleased to host the upcoming Roundtable to delve into topics of increasing importance to industry and regulators regarding privacy coherence.
