Course Outline:

Data Privacy is the great headache every lawyer needs to address in relation to any regulatory investigation, litigation involving the disclosure of personal data or internal investigation into fraud, bribery or money laundering.

This course contains practical advice for law firms on how to avoid legal liability for themselves and their clients.  That liability will generally arise through an inadvertent breach of data privacy laws either locally or internationally.  The EU privacy laws have far reaching consequences for internal and regulatory investigations in Asia and how law firms and corporations must conduct these procedures.

With the emerging technologies such as cloud storage and internet of things (IoT), the potential for privacy breaches becomes more wide ranging.  We examine the use of technology and analytics to protect firms and their clients from inadvertent exposure to these risks.  We examine these in the context of civil and criminal penalties that may apply in Hong Kong.

It addresses the following topics:

  • Case studies in Asia-Pacific involving data privacy issues in investigations
  • Out with safe harbour, in with privacy shield, implications for Asia
  • Modern issues affecting liability for choice of jurisdiction such as:
    1. Cloud storage
    2. Internet of Things (IoT)
    3. Device synchronisation and security
  • Problematic jurisdictions in Asia for conducting investigations
  • Technological solutions to reduce risk:
    1. Forensic Analysis
    2. Data Analytics
    3. Data centre storage/review environments
