How to Effectively Manage a Data Governance Program in Hong Kong

0 Comments 1:43 am

Hong Kong () is a special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China. It is famous for its vibrant economy and business hubs. It is also known for its cultural diversity, world-class education and high-quality healthcare.

The PDPO establishes data subject rights, specific obligations to data controllers and regulates the collection, processing, holding and use of personal data through six data protection principles. The PDPO covers all personal data whether collected inside or outside of Hong Kong.

While modernization of data protection laws is mooted, businesses that process personal data should ensure they understand their duties under the existing framework. This is particularly important for companies that use technologies that learn about a person’s behaviour or are based on information that can identify them, such as their HKID number.

It is essential that the leadership of a data governance program have the right skills and experience. This includes a project leader who can manage the schedule, assign tasks and create an ongoing roadmap for success. The leadership team should also include business and IT subject matter experts, who can serve as bridges to help the teams understand each other’s responsibilities and how their actions may impact the other. Data and enterprise architects and senior business systems analysts are good choices for these roles.

Your governance team will also need to be able to clearly communicate the importance of your initiatives, and build the support needed from stakeholders. This is especially critical if you are embarking on a major change program with significant business and technology implications.
