On May 12, 2020, Kim & Chang co-hosted a webinar on “Law and Policy Tasks After the Amendments to Korea’s Three Major Data Privacy Laws” with Korea Data Law and Policy Society and International Cyber Law Studies.
The webinar explored key details of the amendments to the three major data privacy laws*, recently announced proposed amendments to the data privacy laws’ Enforcement Decrees, and the current position of the relevant regulators. In addition, speakers at the webinar discussed desirable directions for privacy laws and policies in the era of artificial intelligence (“AI”). The webinar consisted of two presentation sessions and a panel discussion session.
In the first session, In Hwan Lee, a member of our Privacy & Data Security Practice, presented on “Interpretation of Pseudonymized Information and Compatibility with the Amended Data Privacy Laws” and highlighted the importance of interpreting pseudonymized information and compatibility issues in accordance with the existing Korean jurisprudence.
In the panel discussion session on “AI Industry-Related Law and Policy Tasks in the Era of Amended Data Privacy Laws,” Seong-Koo Cheong, a member of our Privacy & Data Security Practice, participated as a panelist.
Ji Eun Lee, who is also a member of our Privacy & Data Security Practice and served as the webinar’s chair, remarked that “professional assistance is essential to achieve maximum utilization of data based on the accurate interpretation of the recent amendments, and close monitoring of following changes to the subordinate regulations and the regulatory agencies’ interpretation of laws will be needed."
