Event description

Description


Rapid advances in information and communication technology have made information more accessible, bringing tremendous changes in people’s daily life. Nowadays, individual users can access easily information content, shop, book holidays, find directions, or track one's fitness simply by typing words or voicing questions. However, at the same time, how each person searches for and later uses the information can be tracked, collected and stored by third parties. Our digital footprints have raised important privacy concerns which are made even more critical in light of the seemingly ubiquitous internet, the increasing connection between things and people, and the ease with which personal data can be transferred across jurisdictions.

This public symposium is jointly organised by the Center for Information Technology, Society, and Law (ITSL) of the University of Zurich and the Law and Technology Centre of the University of Hong Kong. The symposium features presentations on privacy by four leading scholars/practitioners working on the topical issue of privacy and data protection in Switzerland and Hong Kong. This symposium aims to address different dimensions of privacy challenges in today’s environment and will conclude with a lively panel discussion on the future of privacy.

Participants:

Moderator: Professor Zhao Yun; Head of the Department of Law, the University of Hong Kong

Commissioner Stephen Kai-yi Wong; Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data, Hong Kong

Professor Anne S.Y. Cheung; Faculty of Law, the University of Hong Kong

Prof. Dr. Rolf H. Weber; Professor Emeritus of Private, Business and European Law and Co-Chair of ITSL, Faculty of Law, University of Zurich

Prof. Dr. Florent Thouvenin; Chair for Information and Communications Law and Co-Chair of ITSL, Faculty of Law, University of Zurich

Presented by the University of Zurich in collaboration with the University of Hong Kong


資訊及通訊技術急速發展,更容易獲得資訊,為人類日常生活帶來巨大變化。現在,個人用戶可輕易取得資訊內容、購物、預約假期、尋找方向、或僅需透過輸入文字或以語音發出提問即可追蹤個人的體能資料。然而,與此同時,各人如何搜索資料及其後如何使用有關資料,均可被第三方追蹤、收集和儲存。我們的數碼足印已引起重大私隱憂慮,鑑於似乎無處不在的互聯網,物件與人們之間的關連日益增加,個人資料亦可輕易在司法管轄區之間轉送,私隱憂慮更為嚴重。

本次討論會由蘇黎世大學資訊科技、社會及法律中心(the Center for Information Technology, Society, and Law (ITSL) of the University of Zurich)與香港大學法律及科技中心共同舉辦。討論會由四名參與瑞士與香港的私隱及資料保護專題研究工作的主要學者/從業人員講解私隱事宜,旨在解決現今環境下不同方面的私隱問題,最後會進行小組討論,探討未來私隱情況。
