Data protection and privacy laws work very differently in Asia compared with Europe and North America.
  • How do you address privacy challenges in this fast-growing region?
  • To what extent are the Asian laws responding to the EU Data Protection Regulation?
  • To what extent do the APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules have traction in this region?
  • In which countries should companies expect mediation to play a role?

If you have business in Asia, this is your ideal opportunity to gain unique insights into the working of privacy laws in China, Japan, Singapore and South Korea. Plus:

  • Significant developments expected across other Asian jurisdictions
  • Questions companies are asking and practical steps they are taking to adapt their operations
  • Helping your company plan where to allocate resources according to your risk profile

This event qualifies for up to 5 SRA CPD hours and 5 CPE Credits.
