Are you an NGO or social enterprise handling personal data daily in your operations in India, Hong Kong, Singapore or Japan? Does your work touch on the GDPR in Europe? Do you want to know more about data compliance in these countries?
In an environment where human rights, ethics, and dignity of stakeholders are all important values, data protection is not just a matter of regulatory compliance, but also a necessity to uphold the trust and confidence of your stakeholders. For example, a data breach may have devastating consequences for an NGO in terms of losing donors or clients.
In support to civil society organizations in the Asian region, TrustLaw’s legal partners DXC Technology and Simmons & Simmons are co-hosting an online training for NGOs to understand what are your data compliance obligations, how you can address them and how data protection and privacy can become enablers instead of inhibitors to their daily work.
The webinar will focus on data compliance generally in the Asia region, with specific focus on Europe’s GDPR, India, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore. All TrustLaw members dealing with personal information on a daily basis or looking to understand data compliance in these countries are welcome.
