Managing the Risks in the Fast-Changing Internet

Xiaoyan Zhang was invited by Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) to moderate a session at a seminar on cyber-security titled “Managing the Risks in the Fast-Changing Internet”, which took place as part of the “Affiliated Events” organised during the 4th Annual Hong Kong Arbitration Week. The seminar was held at HKIAC’s premises on 28 October 2015, and was attended by approximately 60 participants. The seminar served as a forum for legal practitioners, policy makers, and technical experts to exchange their views on salient legal and policy issues pertaining to cyber-security. Xiaoyan’s session, titled “The Threats, Attacks and Strategies”, explored the legal and compliance implications that arise from cyber-security incidents; risk management and incident mitigation strategies; and recent developments in Mainland China such as the First Draft Cyber-security Law. The panel of speakers, which included Rob McKenna of Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe; Marc Placzek of activeMind AG; and Joseph Leung of Hong Kong Polytechnic University, discussed examples of highly-publicised cyber-attacks in the past couple of years; cyber-security legislation in Germany and the U.S. and the implications it has on the business community; and developments and trends emerging in cyber-security in Asia including Hong Kong, Singapore and China. The session concluded with predictions for cyber-security in 2016 and Q&A.

Established by HKIAC, Hong Kong Arbitration Week is an inaugural event that explores and celebrates the triumphs and challenges of international arbitration while actively promoting the development of the practice in Asia through conferences and various events.
