The impact on culture

of the world of privacy & security

  -  cultural difference in privacy & security among Germany, USA and Japan  -


Place: Central Munich area 

Date:5th, July 2019 (Fri.) 14:00-16:00

*Includes 30 min of socializing time


According to a report published in January 2019 by one of the largest American IT companies, 59% of 3206 corporate entities in the world are meeting all or most of GDPR’s requirements at this time. As you can see from this result, we can determine that corporates have a strong interest in complying with this new regulation.


On the other hand, the level of implementation is often only at the superficial level and the process itself is negatively affecting multinational companies’ corporate efficiency due to the cultural differences in privacy & security management across different regions and countries.  Many companies and organizations fail to see the urgency in the GDPR and its new role in the world of international business, trade and innovation.


To cope with such issues, understanding the difference of cultural values is the first thing to do to keep the multinational company’s’ corporate efficiencies at high level.


In this seminar, we are going to present how privacy & security is important to German culture and what needs to be done to earn trust from German local stakeholders (also the most influential member of the EU) with the comparisons of US and Japan culture given as examples.
