Privacy and data security in Asia: the cultural, economic, and legal evolution

Date: 
Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - 8:45am to 10:00am
Panel Description: 

In recent years, the world has witnessed a profound change in awareness and in fundamental attitudes about privacy and data security. This has been driven by a number of factors such as digitization, economic globalization, increased individual awareness about data privacy, and recognition of the value of personal data as an economic asset. This has resulted in a spectrum of legal frameworks motivated by concerns about personal data privacy on one end, and the desire for an unrestricted flow of information in commerce on the other. The panel will lead a dialogue on the evolution of these changes in Asia.
