Privacy Awareness Week 2019 (PAW 2019) - Symposium on “Data Ethics in Action” (9 May 2019)

The Symposium on “Data Ethics in Action”, the flagship event of DPOC’s new membership year 2019-20.

In today’s digital age, data is captured and analysed through a collection of infrastructure, analytics and applications. While we are all well aware of the enormous benefits brought by big data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, they also pose unprecedented challenges to the existing regulatory framework in data protection, emerging from uninformed behavioural tracking or profiling, data breach, electronic surveillance and interception.

The PCPD strongly believes that in addition to compliance with the legislation, organisations should also be held to a higher ethical standard that meets the stakeholders’ expectations. Data ethics and stewardship can therefore bridge the gap between legal requirements and stakeholders’ expectations.

Speakers from relevant professions and industries have shared their insights and experience concerning how their organisations have developed their Privacy Management Programme and adopted data ethics to give individuals more confidence that their interests in data privacy are being protected and nurture a good privacy culture in our society.

Briefing and sharing on Privacy Management Programmes
A Strategic Shift from Compliance to Accountability

Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD) has been advocating that organisations should make personal data protection part of their corporate governance responsibilities and implement it throughout their organisations using a top-down approach. In February 2014, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, together with twenty five companies from insurance sector, nine companies from the telecommunications sector and five organisations from other sectors, all pledged to implement PMP. To assist organisations implementing this concept, PCPD also released “Privacy Management Programme: A Best Practice Guide”. The Guide outlines the building blocks of PMP. (www.pcpd.org.hk/pmp)
