The adoption of digital technologies has accelerated over the past few years with the pandemic changing the way businesses are conducted around the world. Further, cyber incidents and threats in data security are also at unprecedented levels given the growing trend of these technologies. Thus, the rapid shift in digitizing internal operations has exposed organizations to commercial and legal risks, such as non- performing contracts and failure to meet contractual obligations, resulting in an increase in legal disputes and claims.

As COVID-19 continues to affect the capital markets, it is imperative to address the practical issues and legal considerations in digitizing contracts to create a more robust business ecosystem. New practices are required to enable businesses to move forward amidst future uncertainties to stay ahead in the evolving landscape.

This webinar will delve into the execution of digital contracts and its implications on corporate transactions including the legal and practical issues and optimal approaches in dealing with such issues through case laws. The enforceability of digital contracts executed overseas will also be assessed. In addition, the webinar will provide perspectives on the relevancy of privacy and cybersecurity to corporate counsel and businesses, the regulatory considerations and recent developments surrounding privacy and cybersecurity, as well as the lessons learned from the movement control order.

Following the emergence from the lockdown, insights on remedying digital contracts that do not meet requirements of the law and practical guidance and best practices will also be shared. The webinar will conclude with the future of digital contracts, privacy and cybersecurity from a regulatory and legal perspective.
