Tech-Transfer Webinar 21: Data Protection in Japan in a post GDPR World

October 05 2018

05-10-18 | 10:00 - 11:00 AM CET

In a business environment that is becoming increasingly interconnected and dependent on data exchange, protection of data is one of the most sensible legal topics to deal with. The implementation of the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) in May 2018 has set new standards to protect personal data also beyond the territory of the European Union.

This webinar seeks to provide an overview of the applicable legal framework of data protection to European businesses operating in Japan and addresses how to cope with these requirements in practice. Various issues commonly arising in this context will be discussed, including the major differences between the GDPR and the data protection regulations in Japan.

Registration deadline: 04/10/2018

What you will learn during this webinar?

In this webinar, we will amongst other topics cover the following:

  • What data protection regime applies to businesses of European Investors in Japan?
  • What legal grounds exist for the processing of personal data in Japan?
  • What are the major differences between the GDPR and the data protection in Japan?
  • Can personal data, such as customer data, be legally transferred from Japan to countries of the European Union? If so, what legal criteria must be complied with?
