Privacy Insight Series Webinar
The Path to U.S. – Japan Data Transfer Compliance
February 13 @ 9AM PT | 12PM ET | 5PM GMT
Online Webinar  

Japan’s data protection law, the Act on the Protection of Personal Information (APPI) requires that companies have sufficient data protections for data transfers out of Japan. Since APPI went into effect in May 2017, companies, including subsidiaries of U.S.-headquartered companies in Japan, are liable for any violation and are subject to enforcement.

APPI recognizes that the APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) system is one mechanism to demonstrate that required data protections are in place. An APEC CBPR Certification can support companies’ compliance efforts with APPI and show their commitment to secure U.S . -Japan data transfer.

This webinar will cover the following:

  • International data transfer requirements under APPI and who they apply to along with how the APEC CBPR system fits in with these requirements
  • Introduction to APEC CBPR certification, including benefits in the context of APPI requirements
  • Real-world examples from industry experts on how APEC CBPR certification can fit in with your global compliance strategy

Privacy Insight Series Webinar
Managing Risk & Easing the Pain of Vendor Management
February 20 @ 9AM PT | 12PM ET | 5PM GMT
Online Webinar  

Whether you’re focused on GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA or Privacy Shield – one of the most important components of a privacy and security risk management program is to understand how your third party vendors are handling your data and whether they can maintain compliance. At the same time, you’re struggling to keep up with privacy assessments and security questionnaires about your own data handling practices.

A regulator may never ask about your GDPR compliance status but your largest customer probably will. Demonstrate your compliance or expand and efficiently scale a vendor management program.

This webinar will outline:

  • Options to demonstrate compliance against multiple regulations or buyer requirements
  • Tools and methodology to support privacy and security third party assessments
  • Ways to develop an independent validation program and process for ongoing assurance of a risk-based level of supplier compliance
