As more countries in Asia strengthen their privacy laws and enforcement of such laws, there is an increasing focus on data transfers. For organizations operating in Asia, the most widely recognized data transfer mechanism is the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR). The CBPR are a voluntary framework that enable organizations to transfer personal information between the United States, Mexico, Canada, Taiwan, Australia, Japan, the Republic of Korea and Singapore. This session will explore the certification process and compare it with the European Binding Corporate Rules (BCR) process.
