Protection of Personal Information

 Personal information has been an important resource for corporate management. With the development of various technologies such as AI and IoT (internet of things), it has become more important for many companies to use personal information efficiently to develop further business opportunities. Because of its importance, various laws and rules on the protection or utilization of personal information are being established one after the other - and constantly being amended - in various countries including Japan. For the utilization of personal information, as a matter of course, it is necessary to ensure compliance with various legal systems and not infringe on the privacy of individuals. Furthermore, it is also necessary to duly consider the possibility that the use of personal information may cause its subjects anxiety or unpleasant feelings.
