Personal Data/Data Protection
It is now a common understanding in business that the active use of personal data for businesses, such as the analysis and use of customer data through AI and global human resource management, will have a significant impact on corporate business activities. On the other hand, as the awareness of privacy has increased to an unprecedented level worldwide, regulations on data protection in Japan and other countries have also expanded dramatically, with the data regulations becoming increasingly strict and complex. In such a business environment, it is paramount for businesses to understand the relevant data protection legislation, including Japan's Act on the Protection of Personal Information, and to comply with the latest updates in a timely manner.
