Nowadays, mobile and cloud technologies enable the flow and exchange of information much easier. While technologies may bring convenience to people, there are also privacy and security concerns. Few people are aware of the potential risks and enterprises may violate privacy regulations without knowing it. In fact, many regional and national regulations do restrict cross-border transfer of personal data. For example, if an organisation stores staff information in the cloud, it may violate the local regulation of cross-border data transfer if the cloud spans over several regions. Companies need to strike a balance between the risks and benefits when applying these technologies in their business. In this seminar, the speakers will share their experiences in dealing with cloud computing from the perspective of data privacy protection.

• Data security and operational privacy issues in the cloud
• Legal and privacy framework in Hong Kong
• Practical tips on data privacy protection.
