Privacy and data protection issues have dominated headlines and boardroom discussions over the past two years. With the introduction of GDPR, data breaches such as Cambridge Analytica and even the recent COVID-19 situation, data privacy has been at the forefront of general consciousness.

Unlike the broadly consistent approach to privacy in Europe with GDPR, Asia Pacific remains a patchwork of different privacy laws that companies must learn to navigate. This session will kick off with an overview by our data protection experts of the recent developments in their region followed by an interactive panel discussion.
