Commissioner's IT Advisor Talks Shop
DATA PROTECTION—HONG KONGMarch 23, 2012
"If we embed privacy and security in data flow and the data lifecycle before a feasibility study is done, we don't have to sacrifice functionality." That's according to Henry Chang, information technology advisor at the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data, who says this can be challenging, however, because the pattern to date has been to embed privacy at the tail-end. Chang handles operations and investigation functions, as well as communications with the IT industry. In this feature for ComputerWeekly Hong Kong, Chang discusses ongoing projects and training the office will provide to IT professionals in the future.
