Data Protection World Forum arrives in Singapore

Coming to Singapore Management University on June 11th and 12th, Data Protection World Forum will explore privacy and security within the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) network, and consider the region’s position as legal frameworks evolve. 

The event will break down challenges that organisations face on domestic and international fronts, as they bid to adapt to evolving standards in data protection.

Business owners, IT leaders and senior decision makers, will be able to share ideas as experts throw light problems and opportunities within a privacy sphere of urgent relevance.

Among topics covered at Data Protection World Forum:

International privacy law

After its launch in May 2018, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation continues to send shockwaves through the global data economy.

The legislation has forced organisations to accommodate tougher security and data handling practices – a need that has been magnified by a year of record-breaking data breaches of unprecedented scale.

With leaders such as Apple boss, Tim Cook, and Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, now championing the “human right” of data privacy, regimes around the world are looking to the example set by the GDPR as they formulate new policy.

Our experts will consider how international legislation frameworks are set to evolve, and present strategies with which organisations can follow to promote competitiveness while avoiding regulator action.

A packed agenda

Through keynote talks and panel debates, our guest speakers will also explore topics including:

  • Breach notifications and incidence response strategies
  • Auditing
  • Cross-border data flows
  • Data protection management programmes,
  • The regulator’s perspective

Amid a packed agenda, attendees will gain the tools and knowledge necessary to develop healthy business practices and data-aware working cultures that are vital in modern markets.

Workshops, masterclasses, presentations and panel discussions will deliver further engaging and educational content on all key issues.
