APPI Privacy Assessment


Align business practices with Japan’s Act on the Protection of Personal Information (APPI).

Japan’s first data protection legislation was established with the Act on the Protection of Personal Information (APPI) in 2003. Applying to all businesses that touch personal data of individuals in Japan, APPI distinguishes between “personal information” and “special care-required” personal information. With this layer of complexity to privacy compliance, businesses all around the world must look closely at its practices in Japan. This assessment will review your privacy program against APPI, identify gaps in your privacy program, and create a prioritized action plan to remain compliant as your business advances.
