Co-organised by the PDPC and the Centre for Information Policy Leadership (CIPL), the workshop enables participants to engage international and local industry experts on the roles of certifications (e.g. APEC CBPR and PRP, EU BCR, EU GDPR, codes of conduct, Singapore DP Trustmark) as accountability and compliance tools, in data transfers and as a mechanism for global interoperability.
