Japan’s data protection law, the Act on the Protection of Personal Information (APPI) requires that companies have sufficient data protections for data transfers out of Japan. Since APPI went into effect in May 2017, companies, including subsidiaries of U.S.-headquartered companies in Japan, are liable for any violation and are subject to enforcement.

APPI recognizes that the APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) system is one mechanism to demonstrate that required data protections are in place. An APEC CBPR Certification can support companies’ compliance efforts with APPI and show their commitment to secure U.S . -Japan data transfer.

This on-demand webinar covers the following:

  • International data transfer requirements under APPI and who they apply to along with how the APEC CBPR system fits in with these requirements
  • Introduction to APEC CBPR certification, including benefits in the context of APPI requirements
  • Real-world examples from industry experts on how APEC CBPR certification can fit in with your global compliance strategy
