Staying ahead of the evolving world of privacy in Asia

We were joined by hundreds of privacy professionals in 2023 for our biggest IAPP Asia Privacy Forum yet. The Forum brought together the industry’s most forward-thinking leaders, from regulators and legislators to privacy officers and executives. Speakers shared their regional perspectives on global privacy issues and discussed the most pressing topics affecting privacy in Asia today, including privacy concerns with the use of artificial intelligence and the developing field of data ethics.

Access presentations from Forum 2023

Sessions provided a chance to learn operational practices and recommendations for further developing a privacy operation. Attendees gained insight on the evolving regulations landscape in China, India, Thailand and across the region, as well as an understanding of operating in today’s multinational environment and managing cross-border data flows.

We were proud to announce the IAPP Vanguard Award winner for Asia at the Forum: Lanx Goh, the global head of privacy at Prudential. The Vanguard Awards honor privacy professionals from five geographical regions whose pioneering work is helping to shape the future of privacy and data protection.

Lively discussions and networking activities brought the privacy community in Asia together. We hope to see you for next year’s IAPP Asia Privacy Forum.
