PDPA Compliance and Data Protection Specialists

AsiaCloud stands at the forefront of data protection in Singapore, offering expert guidance and services to ensure your business's full compliance with the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA). With the PDPA setting the benchmark for data privacy, our role is to navigate its complexities on your behalf, allowing you to operate with confidence and integrity.

What is PDPA?

The Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) establishes a legal framework for the protection of personal data in Singapore, safeguarding individuals' personal data against misuse and promoting proper management of personal data in organizations. The Act comprises various rules governing the collection, use, disclosure, and care of personal data, reflecting Singapore's commitment to safeguarding individuals' data privacy in the digital age.

Why do your business need to be PDPA-compliant?

The Commission's power has been enhanced to accept voluntary undertakings as part of its enforcement regime.  There are strict timelines for reporting data breaches to the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC). Organisations must notify the PDPC as soon as practicable and no later than 3 calendar days from determining that a data breach is notifiable. Failure to meet these deadlines can result in significant penalties.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) without a DPO may face significant costs. Engaging an external party to respond to PDPC inquiries following a data breach can cost between $3,000 and $6,000 per man-day. Additionally, organisations have a maximum of 60 days to respond to PDPC findings regarding a data breach. The PDPC can impose financial penalties of up to $1 million or 10% of an organisation’s annual turnover in Singapore, whichever is higher.

IT IS MANDATORY TO HAVE DPO

Under the Personal Data Protection Act 2012, organizations must appoint at least one Data Protection Officer (DPO). The contact information of the DPO must be publicly accessible, via company website and ACRA portal.

 

 

DPO Responsibilities:

  • PDPA Compliance: Oversee your organization's adherence to PDPA regulations.

  • Culture of Privacy: Cultivate a data protection mindset across your business.

  • Inquiries Management: Provide prompt responses to data-related queries.

  • Risk Advisory: Advise leadership on potential data privacy risks.

  • Regulatory Liaison: Communicate with the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) as needed.
