Statistics on personal data misuse from the Companies Register

We're waiting for Scott Edmunds to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data,

In light of the current proposal on protection of Personal Information on the Companies Register, this cites as one of the main reasons for withholding more data from public inspection is because of of increased reported cases of doxxing and personal data misuse, the LegCo paper citing as evidence:

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data received 1 036 doxxing complaint cases in 2020.

https://www.legco.gov.hk/yr20-21/english...

Of these 1 036 doxxing complaint cases in 2020 how many related to personal information obtained from the Companies Register?

If you don't have this information to hand you are welcome to share my request with any other department that does have this information.

Yours faithfully,

Scott Edmunds

Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data
