The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been in force since 25 May 2018. Drafted by the EU, it strengthens the
data rights of EU residents and harmonizes data protection laws across all member states, making it identical. Contrary
to many other EU laws and regulations, the GDPR has extra-territorial effects and, in certain circumstances, affects
non-EU countries.

Davide De Rosa, Partner of international law firm Gianni Origoni Grippo Cappelli & Partners, will cover the key points of
the GDPR that organizations need to know and will provide a general overview on what Hong Kong businesses can do to
ensure that they are compliant with the GDPR.
