Recent developments on the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance, and its interpretation

The Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance strives to protect the privacy interests of living individuals in relation to personal data, which has an impact on all walks of life. Over the past couple of years, the government has been strengthening its efforts to protect personal data privacy and prevent abuses of personal information, including through prosecutions and the introduction of new legislation, such as anti-doxing laws. At the same time, professionals, such as forensic accounting and insolvency practitioners, who may need to gain access to personal for legitimate reasons, may find their work affected by these changes.

At this event, speaker, Joyce Liu of Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data, Hong Kong, will cover, amongst others:

  1. General requirements under the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance, including exceptions to the general principles of data protection and sanctions and penalties for non-compliance with data protection laws.
  2. Application of the law in relation to forensic investigators/ insolvency practitioners when conducting investigations, sharing data with third parties, etc.
  3. How the issue of legal privilege dealt with in the context of data protection laws?
  4. Issues from the perspective of data subjects, e.g., what action data subjects can take where they believe that there has been misuse of their personal data, major leaks / loss of personal data?
