Digital trade and digital sovereignty: Navigating best practice for cross border data transfers

Digital trade and digital sovereignty: Navigating best practice for cross border data transfers

This talk aims to explore the challenges of privacy and security protection when Australian companies outsource personal and commercial data from Australia to technology service providers in India, China and other countries.

The traditional jurisdiction rule is based upon geographical domains that divide each country, but cross-border digital transactions are often claimed to be “de-territorialized”. There is a lively public debate in Australia about how to regulate these transactions and ensure Australian consumer rights will not be compromised. Based on a comparative-law approach, this talk aims to map the challenges and discuss tentative solutions.
