Japan's Act on Protection of Personal Information is slated to be amended
for the first time in more than 10 years to facilitate utilization of personal data while continuing to protect privacy. In addition to imposing tighter restrictions in certain areas, the amendment will also enable utilization of data without the consent of the individual to which the data pertains. The amendment is likely to have a substantial impact on financial institutions.
