COVID-19 and the ensuing acceleration of digital technology adoption has surfaced fresh concerns across APEC economies for the adoption of digital technologies in a way that preserves consumer trust, safety, and privacy.


As regulators across the APEC region begin to grapple with new technologies and the emerging regulatory demands for Data Privacy, there is keen interest to revitalize the conversation on maintaining regional coherence in Data Privacy regulations. Ahead of the official kick-off of APEC's 2021 activities, ABAC USA, the National Center for APEC (NCAPEC), in partnership with the BSA and Microsoft, is hosting this Roundtable to encourage broad consensus on pertinent topics relating to personal data protection and privacy and to explore options for the APEC 2021 Agenda to strengthen privacy regulatory coherence.


The discussion will cover issues, including:

· Cross border data transfers and the recognition of different data transfer mechanisms such as codes of conduct, certifications, trustmarks, and contractual arrangements in domestic frameworks and international arrangements such as bilateral MOUs and trade agreements.

· Cooperation mechanisms amongst regulators to facilitate interoperability of cross-border data breach notifications.

· Different legal bases for processing beyond consent and the exceptions and tools that can help regulators ensure consistency across the APEC region.
