Latest Privacy Update by Privacy Rules features Padraig Walsh on Hong Kong’s Legislative Change


This privacy espresso series by Privacy Rules features our partner, Padraig Walsh, providing a brief update on the changes in Hong Kong’s privacy legislation horizon.

In this video, the following aspects were covered in regard to the changes: 

  • Introduction of regulation for data processors
  • Mandatory requirements for businesses to have a data retention policy
  • Administrative fines for the PDPC
  • A mandatory data breach reporting obligation

Pàdraig believes that the data breach and retention policy requirements are the most intriguing aspects as they have the potential to influence changes within the national framework, prompting businesses to make necessary compliance efforts. Furthermore, this could greatly assist Hong Kong and its businesses to align with international data protection law standards, especially with the introduction of new turnover-based fines.
