Professional Biography

For more than 16 years, Charmian Aw has represented market-leading global corporations in navigating the increasingly complex, diverse and fast-evolving tech and data legal landscape in the Asia Pacific region.

Having obtained certifications in information privacy for Asia, Europe and the US (FIP, CIPP/A, CIPP/EU, CIPP/US, CIPM), Charmian has spearheaded multijurisdictional projects (covering up to 82 jurisdictions) on regulatory compliance, data governance, cybersecurity readiness and cross-border transfers.
