Since its enactment in 2012, personal data protection laws govern the collection, use and disclosure of individuals’ personal data by organisations. Data security is one of the key factors that safeguard business’ reputations and provide assurance to all stakeholders that their data is being collected and processed securely. In 2021, amendments are expected to be made to the Personal Data Protection Act (“PDPA”) to strengthen organisational accountability and consumer protection, while giving organisations the confidence to harness personal data for innovation.

Join us and Mr Nicholas Cheong on Wednesday, 2 March 2021, 3pm to 4pm, as we discuss and share the latest amendments to the PDPA that takes effect from 1 February 2021 onwards.
