2017 is an exciting year for data protection developments in Asia. Many jurisdictions have tightened data protection regulations. In this seminar, we will highlight the key developments in China, including the Cyber Security Law, and also new breach notification obligations in Australia. 2017 is also an important year for businesses in Asia to prepare for the General Data Protection Regulation that will become applicable from May 2018. Join us to explore the key implications of data protection developments for businesses in Asia.

We look forward to seeing you at the event.
