Event description

Description

Blockchain is considered a once-in-a-generation type of innovation. However, from a data privacy perspective, the technology has given rise to many practical concerns regarding the enforcement of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Commissioner Wong will provide some insight into the developments from the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD), followed by a panel of industry experts exploring the responsible use of Blockchain in the context of GDPR. Panelists will discuss the technological and regulatory concerns with respect to GDPR and make comparisons with the Hong Kong Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance. Is HK ready for these privacy and security challenges, and what can be done to foster Blockchain innovation in HK? Join us for an evening of knowledge sharing and privacy / security industry networking.
