On May 25th of this year, the rules around data collection were forever changed by the implementation of the General Data Privacy Regulations (GDPR) by the European Union. These rules were adhered to around the world as websites and applications found they could not separate EU citizens without addressing their overarching policies.

Next week, Loo Mun Chan of popular-messaging application LINE will discuss how business are dealing with the wide-ranging impacts of the GDPR both in Asia and around the world. She will discuss how LINE has taken steps to protect user privacy and will demonstrate how a growing, Asia-based messaging application complies with the GDPR on a day-to-day basis. Global expansion while adhering to the GDPR will also be discussed.
