On 26th January, 2016, JBCE held a Data Protection WG meeting inviting a guest speaker, Dr. Hiroshi Miyashita from Chuo University accompanied by Mr. Takeshige Sugimoto from WilmerHale LLP, both of which are specialized in the area of Data Flow/Data Protection.

The presentation mainly focuses on Data Transfer between EU and Japan but covered wide range of topics such as differences and issues of data flow approval schemes including adequacy and EU-US Safe Harbor, relation with Trade Agreement, etc.

Since the topic currently gets a lot of attention, views and information have been actively exchanged between guests and members.
