AIMA APAC invites you to join our webinar on 18 June 2021.

The Personal Information Protection Act of Japan, enacted originally in 2003, is the main law concerning personal data protection in Japan. In 2015, the Japanese National Diet passed the major amendment to the Act, which created a new government agency, the Personal Information Protection Committee. This webinar provides an overview of the Act, various regulations and guidelines issued by the Committee, and their recent amendments. Attendees will gain an understanding of key concepts under the Act including the definitions of personal information and personal data, basic obligations for businesses, regulations related to cross-border data transfers, and how the Act may apply to fund managers outside of Japan that have Japanese investors. The speaker will also provide observations around data breaches or unauthorized use of personal data, and use of data.
