E-Jan International, Mamoru Singapore and Kyocera Communication Systems Singapore hosted a free mini-seminar last June 14, entitled “Learning from the Penalty Case: The Singapore Personal Data Protection Act and Counter-measures”.
Several people attended the mini-seminar, including a number of law professionals. The seminar included an explanation of the 9 main data protection obligations of the PDPA, and aimed to inform and educate attendees of the underlying risk when using free consumer services, such as “Google Drive” or “Whatsapp” for business.
The seminar provided a closer look at a number of data protection enforcement cases in Singapore, and analysed the problem in each case (ie. Overly simplistic passwords that lead to security breaches). Furthermore, the seminar provided participants with solutions on how to monitor or secure personal data without compromising work mobility and efficiency.
