Data protection is become a vital component to the success of businesses in building employee trust and enhancing corporate image. If your business involves the collection and use of personal data, it is important that your staff are kept up-to-date and compliant with the requirements under the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance ("the Ordinance").
The PCPD has developed a series of professional workshops on data protection tailored to the needs of those dealing with personal data in different work contexts. Participants will work through guidance notes issued by the PCPD and practical scenarios with expert guidance from PCPD’s experienced trainers or commissioned consultants.
Upon completion of the workshop, participants will possess a solid knowledge of data protection law, as well as an understanding of the practical implications of the legal requirements under the Ordinance. Participants will be encouraged to discuss cases that they have dealt with and to share ideas and knowledge with other participants. Questions will be answered within a systematic framework enabling participants to apply the fundamental principles to a range of privacy issues.
The Workshops are open to people wishing to deepen their knowledge of data protection. Data Protection Officers, Human Resource Managers, Administration Managers, Compliance Officers, Data Security Personnel, Company Secretaries, Marketing Personnel, Solicitors (in-house or private practice), Insurers, IT Managers, Policy Advisers are welcome to join.
To acquire basic knowledge of the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance, you may:-
