The Sedona Conference Working Group 6 is concerned with cross-border discovery and data protection laws. Its main annual event is usually held in the US or Europe (this year’s was in Berlin) but last year it took place in Hong Kong. This reflects the growing importance of the Asia-Pacific region for US and world commerce as well as the increasingly prevalent new data protection laws in the region.
This year, The Sedona Conference Institute (TSCI) is holding an event in Hong Kong on 21st September. Called the APAC regional programme on cross-border discovery and data protection laws, it considers the legal implications for information technology and services across APAC as organisations address their information technology and infrastructure needs.
The format brings a faculty of experts and an emphasis on dialogue both among faculty members and with the programme participants who are invited and encouraged to take part in the discussions.
