Webinar on Recommended Model Contractual Clauses for Cross-border Transfers of Personal Data

Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data 25th Anniversary Event

Given the increasing digitalisation in the handling of personal data and globalisation of business operations in recent years, the challenges and complexities encountered by local enterprises in cross-border data transfers are set to mount. This is particular so with the proliferation and advancement of information and communication technology, including big data, cloud computing and data analytics.

Against this background, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD) organises this webinar to share with you the “Recommended Model Contractual Clauses (RMCs)” for Cross-border Transfer of Personal Data. The RMCs serve to provide a practical basis for facilitating transfers of personal data from Hong Kong, enabling organisations to come to a clear agreement for transferring personal data in line with the requirements of the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (PDPO) and good data ethics.

Enrolment is on a first-come-first-served basis.
