APAC Data Privacy and Breach Notification: Data Privacy Trends

My latest blog post for IPRO’s blog concludes my look at the perspectives from the Asia Pacific! This time, the post is about APAC data privacy and breach notification!

Last week, I discussed eDiscovery in the APAC region in terms of what each country has in place from a rules and discovery standpoint. eDiscovery isn’t the only discipline where US-based bloggers like me tend to be focused geographically – we also tend to focus our data privacy discussions on the European Union (because of GDPR) and the US.

But other countries around the world have data privacy laws as well, including Asia Pacific countries.

As is the case with eDiscovery, the status of data privacy laws within APAC countries/jurisdictions is quite varied. There are two terrific resources that provide information regarding current APAC data privacy and breach notification laws and requirements.

So, what are some of the data privacy and breach notification differences? And what are the two terrific resources for understanding those differences? You can find out on IPRO’s blog here. It’s just one extra click! For hints this week, you’ll have to “pay the piper”! Hey, that’s a hint! 😉

So, what do you think? Does your organization conduct business within the APAC that is affected by data privacy and breach notification laws and requirements? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
