Cross-Border Data Privacy Regulations in ASEAN: Overcoming Institutional Challenges
รายนามผู้ว่าจ้าง The University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce
Organizations in ASEAN now rely on data to be transferred freely to provide digital products and services across borders. Nevertheless, free flow of cross-border data increases risks of privacy infringement. There are existing ASEAN frameworks that touch upon cross-border data transfers, but most of them are non-binding instruments and their approaches are fragmented. The study conducts a comparison between ASEAN frameworks and other international and regional frameworks to recommend areas for improvement. The study recommends that ASEAN frameworks can be improved in key areas such as institutional oversight and interoperability with other international frameworks.
