Data hk refers to any information that identifies an individual, whether directly or indirectly gathered, which can be used to uniquely identify them. Such data may be collected either directly or indirectly and stored in an accessible format; however, certain restrictions and limits have been placed upon its usage including right to privacy protection, the need to disclose purpose/intent of collecting, as well as seeking consent before using such information; these safeguards aim at protecting individuals from unwarranted and unauthorised collection of personal data.
The PCPD stipulates that data users must provide data subjects with a personal information collection statement (PICS) before the date of initial collection of their information. The PICS should outline both purposes for which it will be used and any classes of persons it could be transferred to; additionally, this statement must be given before data users transfer or use collected information for new purposes.
Apart from that, the PDPO requires data users to comply with access requests within 30 days after receipt. This provision should be kept in mind as it means being prepared to respond quickly to any data subjects who submit requests – be they written or verbal requests.
Hong Kong, one of Asia’s financial hubs and boasting an active business environment, will remain one of the highest demand cities for data center space in terms of demand. This demand will only grow further with its strategic location as an entryway into China and other markets across Asia and the region; therefore it is imperative that Hong Kong’s PDPO reflects this growing need.
Though some minor amendments to the PDPO have been made, they do not address significant shifts in data governance needs and requirements. To keep pace with global developments, the PDPO must be revised so as to meet both business expectations as well as those from society at large.
Start off right by creating both a vision and business case for data governance. Your vision should outline your broad strategic objective, while your business case should outline all the people (roles), technologies, and processes required for your governance program. The business case will help you articulate specific, measurable data governance goals and demonstrate their return on investment for your organization. Furthermore, it serves as an excellent means of tracking progress while setting new improvement targets. Accomplishing these goals will enable you to continuously adapt your data governance framework and bring it in line with your overall business objectives. Doing this will give you access to data necessary for meeting regulatory requirements as well as improving business performance – ultimately leading to innovation and competitive advantage for your company.
