Course Description

Personal data in Singapore is protected under the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (PDPA) which took effect in 2014.

The PDPA establishes a data protection law that comprises various rules governing the collection, use, disclosure and care of personal data by organisations.

This course is divided to 3 parts as follows:

Part 1 – Overview to PDPA

Part 2 – 9 Obligations under the PDPA

Part 3 – Role of Data Protection Officer (DPO)

Part 4 – Managing Data Breaches

This is an essential course for all organisations as a breach may cause a hefty fine of up to $1 million dollars, not including loss of goodwill and reputation and this Part 1 provides a useful overview of the PDPA framework and whom it applies to.
