Learn in Three Hours: The Basics and Practical Operations to Address the Personal Information Protection Act
The Personal Information Protection Act sets forth rules that are relevant not only to B2C companies but also B2B companies when they conduct business. Even if personal information is not the subject of the business, the Act should be observed in terms of relationships with employees and business partners. In addition, the utilization of company-held data in business has been increasing, particularly, in recent years, and personal information must come to mind first when thinking of such data.
