Data Privacy Issues for the Financial Services Industry

Data privacy laws are becoming increasingly important for the financial industry – and increasingly complex. More jurisdictions are introducing comprehensive data privacy laws, cloud technology means personal data is increasingly stored overseas, and customers are becoming more concerned about how their personal data is handled and used. This seminar takes a detailed look at data privacy laws in Hong Kong and overseas and provides practical guidance on the key compliance issues for the financial services sector.
