DATA PROTECTION SERVICES

Right as you read this, vast amounts of personal data are collected, used and even transferred to third-party organizations for a variety of reasons. This trend is expected to grow exponentially as the processing and analysis of large amounts of personal data becomes possible with increasingly sophisticated technology.

With such a trend comes growing concerns from individuals about how their personal data is being used. Hence, a data protection regime to govern the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data are necessary to address these concerns and to maintain individuals' trust in organizations that manage data.

By regulating the flow of personal data amongst organizations, the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) aims to strengthen and entrench Singapore's competitiveness and position as a trusted, world-class hub for businesses.

 

Under Article 11 & 12 of the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC): 
 

An organisation shall designate one or more individuals to be responsible for ensuring that the organisation complies with this Act. An individual designated may also delegate to another individual the responsibility conferred by that designation.

 

Under Article 51(3)(b)(c) of PDPC:
An organisation or person that commits an offence under section 21 and 22 is liable to a fine not exceeding $10,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 12 months or to both (for individual); and in any other case (Corporation), to a fine not exceeding $100,000. 

 

 

Under Article 56 of PDPC:
Any person guilty of an offence under this Act for which no penalty is expressly provided shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $10,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 years or to both and, in the case of a continuing offence, to a further fine not exceeding $1,000 for every day or part thereof during which the offence continues after conviction.
