It’s a New Day in Data Protection

Join the IAPP in Singapore this July for in-depth discussion on connecting Asian economies to each other and the world. In a digital age defined by cross-border data transfers and global data breaches, countries in the Asia Pacific and beyond are reforming data protection. You’ll learn about managing your organisation’s data across multiple jurisdictions at the IAPP Asia Privacy Forum 2018.

Look forward to an expanded 2018 programme featuring two full days of educational sessions and keynote presentations, plus a larger venue space in Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands Hotel. The Forum is the only event that brings globally recognised IAPP programming to Asia. Join us.
