Data Regulation

Overview:

Modern economic activity is increasingly dependent on technology and big data. As a result, regulatory focus on effective management and mitigation of risks related to data ownership, confidentiality and cybersecurity has also intensified.

From depending on third-party service providers or vendors to transferring personal data to overseas regulators for supervisory purposes, firms need to keep abreast of relevant data regulation developments and enhance their privacy standards.

If would like to join the AIMA Data Regulation Working Group and keep up to date with regulatory changes and discussion relating to personal data and data privacy law, please contact Adam Jacobs-Dean ([email protected]).
