The Forum will also help you stay informed on issues affecting your own privacy operation including AI governance, cross-border data transfers, data sovereignty, privacy-enhancing technologies and complying with China’s PIPL law.

In addition to helping advance your career as a privacy thought leader, this conference can help you build your network while sharing ideas and best practices with hundreds of engaged privacy pros.

The Forum is operating in conjunction with Singapore’s Personal Data Protection (PDP) Week 2024, held by the Personal Data Protection Commission. PDP Week begins with its flagship seminar, followed by two days of the Asia Privacy Forum, and a suite of workshops and deep-dive sessions.
