0 Enrolled
Workshop Description

With accelerating growth in data-centric technologies such as Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and gig economy, there is an exponential increase in the volume of personal data generated, collected and processed around the world and in Singapore. The new Personal Data Protection (Amendment) Bill 2020 just passed on 2 November 2020 seeks to strengthen the accountability of organisations, to recalibrate the balance between individual’s consent and organisational accountability to harness data for appropriate and legitimate purposes, to grant greater consumer autonomy over their own personal data, and to strengthen the effectiveness of enforcement efforts by the Personal Data Protection Commission (“PDPC”).

The amendments to the PDPA are timely in the fast-changing landscape of the digital economy and bring Singapore’s personal data protection laws up to date and aligned with international standards, such as the GDPR.

This workshop identifies and communicates key legislative and regulatory requirements, assesses, documents and reports potential areas of noncompliance with regard to policies, procedures and business activities. It assists in the integration of procedures to ensure compliance, as well as prepares management report for follow-up.
