Asia was the first region in the world to experience the outbreak of Covid-19, which happened at a time when many countries in the region were already working on substantial revisions to laws dealing with technology-related data-privacy concerns. The crisis put into stark relief the trade-offs between the risks to privacy and the risks to public health of using, or not using, technology in such public-health emergencies. The reactions of governments and the public to the use of technologies such as contact-tracing applications have been varied. South Korea and Australia provide case studies highlighting the challenges regulators face, especially as privacy issues have emerged in recent years as the subject of major policy developments in the US and Europe.
In this webinar, MLex data-privacy regulation experts Mike Swift in San Francisco, Choi Hyung-jo in Seoul and Laurel Henning in Sydney lay out the global and country-specific developments surrounding data-privacy protection in Asia, including:
