This hot session informed a packed audience on emerging trends in privacy protection laws that are developing in ASEAN and APEC, and how a regional mechanism like the APEC CBPR System streamlines efforts across countries.
What An Engaging Forum!
The sold-out 2018 Asia Privacy Forum inspired and informed on the rapid advance of data protection in Asia-Pacific and around the world. Delegates engaged with interactive sessions and made valuable new connections throughout the data protection community. Data protection professionals joined us from Singapore, India, the Philippines, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, Europe and North America.
The expanded, two-day programme was our most diverse and robust yet, delivering crucial discussion about privacy in an age of cross-border data transfers and global data breaches. From APEC to GDPR, delegates explored the future of the field, learning how to manage organisations’ data across multiple jurisdictions and economies. Thanks to all for making the 2018 Forum a spectacular conference!
