The PCPD released a report in February on its work during the course of 2022.
In order to increase the public’s awareness of and compliance with the Personal Data (Privacy) (Amendment) Ordinance 2021 (“Amendment Ordinance”) that came into effect on 8 October 2021, the PCPD carried on with various publicity and education campaigns during 2022, ranging from announcements on television and radio channels to seminars and webinars.
Further, through the issue of guidelines, release of media statements and responses to media enquiries, the PCPD continued its advisory role in respect of personal data privacy issues of great concern, including, but not limited to, the new anti-doxxing regime, vaccine pass arrangements, personal data privacy risks arising from working from home, use of drones, precautions against personal data fraud and regulations for cross-border transfer of personal data. The PCPD also took an active role in the enforcement of the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance by handling complaints, investigations and checks.
