Reaching Out to Businesses – Privacy Commissioner attends meeting of the Business Facilitation Advisory Committee

The Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (Privacy Commissioner), Ms Ada CHUNG Lai-ling, and the Chief Personal Data Officer of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD), Ms Amy CHAN Mei-yee, attended the 49th meeting of the Business Facilitation Advisory Committee (BFAC) on 9 November to introduce to its members the PCPD’s role in assisting businesses and companies to enhance data governance.

Among other things, the Privacy Commissioner introduced the rising trend of data breach incidents in recent years, as well as various Guidance Notes issued by the PCPD, including the “Guidance Note on Data Security Measures for Information and Communications Technology” and the “Guidance on the Ethical Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence”. To assist companies in establishing a comprehensive privacy management system, the PCPD has issued the “Privacy Management Programme: A Best Practice Guide” and established the Data Protection Officers’ Club. The Privacy Commissioner advocates that companies should embrace personal data protection as part of their data governance and develop their Personal Data Privacy Management Programme and appoint a Data Protection Officer so as to ensure compliance with the requirements of the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance.
