Application Closed

PDPA Seminar

A thorough explanation of how to handle the PDPA, including IT solutions

With the Kingdom of Thailand’s first personal information protection law, the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) set to go into effect in May 2020, many companies are surely searching for information on how to adapt to the new law.

The PDPA will place restrictions on businesses’ handling of personal information, and it is expected to have a large effect on Japanese corporations currently operating in Thailand, or considering operating in Thailand in the future. As of Nov. 2019, government ordinances, rules and guidelines related to the PDPA have not been publically announced, and it will be necessary to keep a close eye on what the Thailand government’s Personal Data Protection Committee does from here on.

In this seminar, in addition to providing a correct understanding of the PDPA, we will introduce what we believe to be required countermeasures to adapt to the new law.
