We are pleased to announce the release of a guide relating to the Protection and Cross border Transfer of Personal Information in the Asia Pacific which has been compiled by Multilaw members with data protection expertise within the region.
The guide is in a Q&A format with information provided by Multilaw member firms in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
Due to the importance of personal information both for business and individual rights thereunder, Asia Pacific countries implemented laws and regulations for protection of personal information and restriction on its transfer to third countries, similar to the GDPR.
This guidance is informative especially for business entities that process personal information in Asia Pacific countries or transfer it from or to Asia Pacific countries.
Due to the rapidly changing laws and regulations for protection of personal information, each law firm author should be contacted for updates.
