In a session at the Global Privacy Summit 2018 called "The World Beyond: Global Privacy Priorities Outside the GDPR," regulators from Israel, Japan and Canada outlined the nuances of each of their respective privacy regimes, all undergoing changes of some sort and all aiming to keep pace with the legal requirements of the GDPR in order to be considered "adequate." For now, looking forward, Japan awaits its answers from the EU, as does Canada. Canadian Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien said, "I've had to answer certain questions as to the oversight that my office provides." The decision ultimately has to be made, under GDPR rules, by April 2020 at the latest. So, "there's still time for these discussions to unfold," Therrien said. "My hope is there will be some amendments to Canadian law that will make it easy for European authorities." Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, has the story.
