The Asia Pacific Institute for the Digital Economy (APIDE) in partnership with Keio University is pleased to convene the Sixth Multi-Stakeholder Meeting on Privacy Policy Developments in Japan, Korea and the US. The Forum will take place on the Mita Campus of Keio University on the 6th Floor of the East Building in the G-Sec Conference Room from 6PM to 8PM on June 24, 2016. The Forum is the sixth in a series of conferences that were launched in March 2014 to promote greater public discussion of privacy issues that are important to the future of the Digital Economy in Japan and the Asia Pacific Region.

Simultaneous interpretation in Japanese and English will be available.

We are pleased to welcome several distinguished speakers, who will offer keynote remarks on recent privacy policy developments in Japan, Korea and the United States. Kazunori Yamamoto, the Director of the Secretariat for Japan’s Personal Information Protection Commission (PPC), will update on discussions with the PPC on implementing Japan revised Personal Information Protection Act. Michael Panzera, Counsel for International Consumer Protection (Asian and Latin American Bilateral Affairs) at the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will provide a summary of the FTC’s recent enforcement and policy initiatives, with particular emphasis on cross-border data transfers, Big Data & the Internet of Things. Professor Nohyoung Park, the Director of Korea University’s Cyber Law Centre, will offer an assessment of the Korean Personal Information Protection Act as amended in 2014. The act is reputed to be among the most stringent privacy protection laws globally and is controversial because of its restrictions on cross-border data transfers.

As always, we are also bringing together an outstanding panel of multi-stakeholder experts coming from different areas of the economy and society in Japan. They will comment on the keynote presentation and provide their own perspectives on the privacy policies in Japan and the region.
