Author: Sinead Lynch

At DLA Piper we advise clients that develop or create technology, are enabled by technology, or whose business model is fundamentally based on technology. From start-ups, to fast growing and mid-market businesses, to mature global enterprises, DLA Piper supports innovative businesses and new ventures. It is at the heart of what we do.

Our TechLaw podcast series covers varying aspects of the technology sector in Australia, from mergers and acquisitions, through to tokenisation and modern slavery. If you have any questions or would like to request a topic for discussion, please do not hesitate to get in touch with your DLA Piper technology sector team. We hope you enjoy the series.

In this episode Aaron Bleasdale, Associate GC and Head of ASP – Data Privacy, Legal at HSBC Group, joins Sinead Lynch from Hong Kong to explore whether increased digital transformation in the financial services sector – accelerated by COVID-19 – has resulted in a shift in the risk management of data privacy and governance across the region. Should data privacy be embraced as a business opportunity now, rather than viewed as a business risk only for many in this sector? Aaron and Sinead discuss the changing regulatory landscape across the region and the ongoing implications this has for business.
