The Singapore Government released the amendments to the Personal Data Protection Act ( “PDPA” ) for public consultation in May 2020.
It is likely that most of the amendments set out in the draft Personal Data Protection ( Amendment ) Bill 2020 ( “Bill” ) will be passed, since the PDPC has previously carried out three consultations on key policy proposals, and the Bill consolidates all of these earlier proposals.
Organisations should plan ahead for the significant changes to the PDPA.
This timely webinar will focus on the important changes on how personal data should be handled in future including the proposed expanded deemed consent, consumer’s right for data portability, mandatory data breach reporting by companies and the enhanced penalty of up to 10% of a company’s gross turn-over for data breaches instead of the up to 1 million dollars currently.
The topics to be covered in the webinar are:
