Launch Seminar: Hogan Lovells Asia Pacific Data Protection and Cyber Security Guide 2023

Data protection and cyber security compliance has become a critical area for management focus in the Asia-Pacific (“APAC”) region.

China’s introduction of its Personal Information Protection Law (“PIPL”) has generated significant uncertainty, but it is now clear that the broad contours of the regime include a movement by China towards the gold standard of GDPR, coupled with a focus on “cyber sovereignty” that adds important departure points from the reference point EU law.

A flurry of legislative amendments across the wider APAC region generally show a more selective approach to GDPR adoption, but the trendline is clear. As Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and other jurisdictions move to upgrade their data protection laws, it has become increasingly clear that organizations in APAC must adopt a fresh approach to compliance, taking into account the accountability-driven approach championed by GDPR and recognizing that regulatory fines are moving sharply higher and will continue to do so in coming years.

Our popular annual seminar, finally back in in-person format, will introduce our Asia Pacific Data Protection and Cyber Security Guide 2023, which tracks the developments and key initiatives of APAC countries while looking ahead to the implications of an ever-shifting data protection and cyber security landscape.

Join us on Thursday 1 June, when our panelists from five offices in the region will discuss the latest developments that businesses operating in APAC should know about and explore ways to help you navigate the dynamic regulatory landscape. Among others, the following topics will be covered:

  • Updates on the implementation of China’s PIPL and Data Security Law and practical approaches to compliance
  • Japan’s move to extraterritorial application of its Act on the Protection of Personal Information, as well as the introduction of a mandatory data breach notification obligation and an expanded range of data subject rights
  • Indonesia’s enactment of its Personal Data Protection Law and its implication for business
  • Amendment of the Privacy Act in Australia – what you need to be aware of
  • What to watch for the proposed reforms to Hong Kong’s Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (“PDPO”)
