Current in Hong Kong SAR, personal data protection is guaranteed solely through the Personal Data Protection Ordinance (PDPO), which ensures no person may experience interference with their privacy, family life and correspondence, or attacks against their honor and reputation without legal authority. Unfortunately, however, the scope of PDPO has several restrictions which do not extend outside Hong Kong; hence its application does not cover activities taking place outside its boundaries, rendering PDPO ineffective when businesses operate in different jurisdictions.
This year, Hong Kong government released a discussion paper exploring potential changes to PDPO, such as expanding its definition. A suggested change would require data concerning identifiable people rather than just individuals – providing additional protection for individuals as well as more stringent compliance measures for businesses that use personal data.
The discussion paper highlighted that many of these challenges could be alleviated with technological innovations, including artificial intelligence (AI) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN). At Allied Telesis, our Network AI software helps automate administrative tasks that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to automate, and can predict changes before they even take place – this enables network operators to be more proactive and responsive towards customer requirements, increasing efficiency while creating business opportunities.
