The Right People to Support Your Data Governance Program

Having the right people in place to support your business data governance program is key. They are the people that will champion, sponsor, steward and operationalize the policies you’ll develop to align your organization with its data management objectives. Having the right roles in place means that you’ll have the best chance of getting the results you want from your data governance program.

The PDPO defines personal data as any information about a living individual from which it is practicable to identify the individual directly or indirectly. Personal data collected for one purpose cannot be used for another purpose without the explicit consent of the individual. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. These include: (i) for the purposes of safeguarding Hong Kong’s national security, defence and international relations, crime prevention or detection; (ii) assessment or collection of any tax or duty; (iii) prevention of unlawful or seriously improper conduct or activities; news activities; and (iv) life-threatening emergency situations.

While the PDPO does not contain any express provisions conferring extraterritorial application, it is generally accepted that where the data user controls the processing cycle of the personal data within Hong Kong, even if the processing takes place outside of Hong Kong, the PDPO will apply. This will ensure that the data user complies with the PDPO’s requirements and protects the personal data of individuals in Hong Kong.
