Hong Kong’s privacy commissioner to review ageing data protection law after ‘major data leaks’

The head of Hong Kong’s data privacy watchdog said on Tuesday that he would review a 22-year-old data protection law following a series of “major data leaks” in the city that affected more than half a million people.

As well as a recent hack into an inactive database owned by Hong Kong Broadband Network (HKBN) that held information on 380,000 customers, a number of cyberattacks also targeted databases belonging to travel agencies, involving some 220,000 clients.
