Sugimoto & Kawashima CCPA Update Seminar

Monday, April 27, 2020, Nippon Club 2nd Fl. Rose Room


A complete compliance system is essential when it comes to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which began this year. While CCPA mainly operates in California, it is widely applicable and can operate both in New York and Japan.

In this seminar, two experts, Mr. Akihiro Kawashima and Mr. Takeshige Sugimoto of Sugimoto Kawashima Law Office, will explain the practical implementation of CCPA compliance in an easy-to-understand manner, taking into account the proposed CAPA Regulation by the Attorney General of California. This event is co-hosted with JETRO, and will be conducted in Japanese.

Registration will Open Mid-March.
