Privacy Education and Perspectives for Asia-Pacific Operations.

Learn the best practices for privacy’s global and regional dichotomy.

The IAPP Asia Privacy Forum delivers the education and instruction needed to navigate today’s privacy and data protection issues in Asia and beyond.

Each year, speakers and delegates explore the intersection of global data protection with local and regional trends and regulations. With data localisation on the rise around the world, topics of interest frequently include the importance of cross-border data flows, as well as data governance controls required to prove legal compliance and maintain the trust of consumers.

Breakout session topics span regulatory and corporate-level concerns all the way down to the personal level, with discussions of ethics and how to handle children’s data. The work of the privacy professional is deeply human work, no matter where in the world your office might be.

Forum delegates make valuable new connections not only throughout the IAPP community but also with cybersecurity and data protection professionals from adjacent conferences, including RSA Conference and the PDPC’s Personal Data Protection Seminar that typically runs in conjunction with the conference.
