Most are aware of the EU's General Data Protection Regulation, as it is one of the most well-known and referenced data regulations worldwide. But what about other jurisdictions?

Singapore and China, crucial nodes of global commerce, have taken strong stances on how to treat data, whether collected and processed in-country or transferred across borders. This event will focus on data compliance-related developments of particular importance to businesses operating in Singapore and China. We will cover issues such as data security classifications, privacy architecture implementation, cross-border data transfer controls, as well as where the relevant laws and regulations of Singapore and China run parallel or diverge. Ultimately, attendees will receive actionable insights into approaching, understanding, and implementing solutions to these evolving concerns.

Nathaniel Rushforth, an experienced data security expert familiar with the requirements of data protection in markets like the US and China from Dezan Shira & Associates' Shanghai team, will discuss the key points of data compliance with two seasoned cybersecurity experts: IAPP board member Christopher Chew and Lanx Goh, Global Head of Privacy of Prudential.

What we will cover:

  • Overview of China's PIPL (timeline, implementation, outlook)
  • Comparison Singapore's & China's data protection laws and how they interact
  • Applied Practices for Singaporean headquartered firms
  • How firms with headquarters in both countries can optimize and streamline processes
  • Q&As
