The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been in force since 25 May 2018. Drafted by the EU, it strengthens the data rights of EU residents and harmonizes data protection laws across all member states, making it identical. Contrary to many other EU laws and regulations, the GDPR has extra-territorial effects and, in certain circumstances, affects non-EU countries.
Davide De Rosa, Partner at the international law firm Gianni Origoni Grippo Cappelli & Partners, will cover the key points of the GDPR that organizations need to know and will provide a general overview on what Hong Kong businesses can do to ensure that they are compliant with the GDPR.
