What you need to know to protect personal information

Wednesday 7 July 2-3:30pm SIN/HK

With more newsrooms setting up registration pages and paywalls that capture personally identifiable information (PII), how should publications – both print and online – treat the sensitive PII?


What might have begun as a simple “Subscribe to our Newsletter” simple email box on a website a decade ago may have now blossomed into a mailing list of thousands. The popularity of social media apps to distribute content has likewise led to publications collecting subscribers’ mobile phone numbers and possibly other PII. How should publications handle such sensitive information? Who’s liable if it falls into the wrong hands? What are some data privacy regulations across ASEAN that could impact you?


Attend this 90-minute Zoom webinar to find out. A panel of experts from across the region will discuss and debate issues related to the acquisition, handling and deleting of PII, cross-border concerns about the free flow of information, cybersecurity and hacking, the role of AI, and the impact of regulations such as Europe's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Singapore's Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA). It will include case studies and use-cases.



Who should attend?

Editors, producers, journalists and product managers/executives who routinely handle users’ personal data. News IT executives interested in newsroom and user practices (note that this is not a technical session on data security).
