In this digital world, it is vital to ensure the protection of data whilst facilitating cross-border data flows. There is also increasing recognition of the need to cooperate with other jurisdictions to govern the processing of data across borders.
Join our forum discussion on developments in data protection law relating to cross-border data transfers. The first half of the morning will include a discussion on the relevant provisions governing overseas data transfers under Singapore’s Personal Data Protection Act and mechanisms for the protection of transferred data. In the second half, we will focus on recent developments in facilitating cross-border data transfers, particularly the APEC Cross-Border Privacy Rules System. We will also discuss Singapore’s proposed data protection trustmark framework and possible regulatory incentives for certified organisations. We will round up the morning by exploring the idea of a regional trustmark as well as other avenues to bridge different domestic data protection systems.
This forum is an opportunity for legal practitioners, in-house counsel and others who advise on data protection to engage with the regulators in an active discussion on data protection issues. The discussion will be held under Chatham House Rules.
