The challenges of preserving privacy whilst constructing a regulatory framework for a digital new era


The Covid-19 pandemic has greatly accelerated the digital transformation that was already taking place in Chile, connecting people, creating new and exciting opportunities, and facilitating business more than ever before. This of course comes with a unique set of new challenges in protecting the data of companies, as well as that of their clients and strategic partners.

As a result, the regulator is faced with the challenge of outdated legislation that in turn risks making the country less competitive compared to its neighbours, as its ‘safe harbour’ status is under threat. This discourages potential investors, seeing as the lack of guarantees around the safe and secure transfer of information in the country is in doubt.

This webinar, brought to you by The Legal 500 and Magliona, is designed to provide an overview of the Personal Data Bill currently being debated in the Chilean Senate. We will explore the unique sets of challenges it faces, as well as the potential opportunities it seeks to create as it aims to strike a balance between the free flow of information and a regulatory framework that seeks to safeguard the data of the people and companies involved. Join us for a stimulating discussion on one of the fundamental pillars for growing a digital economy whilst partaking in the relevant and practical insights on the current tech regulatory landscape in Chile.
