40th Anniversary of data protection Convention 108


The Data Privacy Day 2021 event is to be held online on 28 January 2021 to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of data protection Convention 108 with its Asia-Pacific privacy stakeholders.

Asia-Pacific governments, privacy regulators, and civil society will touch upon the advantages of the Convention for Asia-Pacific countries, as well as what the suggested path would entail for a particular country. The evolution of Convention 108 into the ‘modernised’ Convention 108+ adds a new dimension.

Speaker will share about the jurisdictional updates and discuss the following questions:

What advantages (or disadvantages) would involvement in the Convention bring?

Is accession to the Convention necessary for involvement?

What does the Convention mean in a post Schrems II era for relationships between the EU (and the GDPR) and Asia-Pacific countries?

How could Convention 108 contribute to relationships between Asia-Pacific countries?
