Identify, control and audit the flow of personal information to ensure confidentiality, and demonstrate Japan PIPA (PIPL) compliance
The Japan Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) or Law (PIPL) requires that enterprises manage and protect the rights of Japanese citizens with regard to their personal information while preserving the usefulness of information technology and personal information for legitimate purposes.
The law requires that businesses communicate why they are collecting and using personal information. Businesses must take reasonable precautions to protect personal information from improper disclosure, unauthorized use or destruction. Persons who violate PIPA can face criminal penalties of up up to six months in prison and civil penalties of up to 300,000 yen.
