February 2017
Computer Law & Security Review

Gabriela Kennedy's Asia Pacific column in the latest issue of Computer Law & Security Review features Mayer Brown article, titled "Signing up to the future – SFC accepts digital signatures" by Gabriela Kennedy and Karen H.F. Lee.

The authors look at the implications of a new circular issued by the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) in October 2016, which confirms that digital signatures generated by certain recognised certification authorities outside Hong Kong will be accepted for client identify verification purposes.

Gabriela is a member of the editorial board of Computer Law & Security Review and edits the Asia Pacific column, a country-by-country analysis of the latest legal developments, cases and issues relating to IT, media and telecommunications in the Asia Pacific region.
