In accordance to the May 30th enactment of the amended Act on the Protection of Personal Information (APPI),
we invited attorney Keiichiro Ota to lead the “Seminar on the Legal Revision of the Protection of Personal Information Law.”
Because the definition of personal information has been widened and the handling of personal information given to third parties tightened by the amendment, this seminar covered the risks concerning the management of personal information and important points that should be heeded in correspondence to the amendment.
