Personal Information Protection Commission(PIPC) holds the 55th APPA Forum
- Seeking mutually beneficial cooperation between regulators and industries on the global personal information agenda.
The 55th Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities(APPA) Forum, organized by the PIPC, will be held online for three days from June 16 to June 18 attended by heads of 19 APPA member organizations and key industry figures.
The APPA, formed in 1992, is a meeting of the heads of the Asia-Pacific personal information supervisory organizations, joined by 19 organizations from 12 countries, including South Korea, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Japan, Singapore, the Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and Macau.
The forum, which is held in the first and second half of each year, will be attended by heads of all supervisory organizations to share personal information policies and activities trends of each country and discuss global privacy issues.
The forum is more meaningful in that it is the first international event organized by the PIPC since it was launched last year as an integrated supervisory body dedicated to personal information, and is expected to play a big role for communication and cooperation to inform the world of domestic privacy policies.
