Wednesday 13th November 2013 at Insead 1, Ayer Rajah Avenue Singapore 138676 From 9:30 to 4:00 pm


Personal Data Protection Act in Singapore- Customer data is a valuable commodity to businesses worldwide. With the proliferation of the Internet, the availability and transferability of personal consumer data has grown exponentially. As a result, there is growing concern and realization that even in Singapore, consumers’ personal data is being sold or misused without their consent.

The Singapore Parliament thus passed the Personal Data Protection Act on 15 October 2012; country’s first Bill aimed at protecting personal data by regulating the collection, use, disclosure, access and care of personal data in a company’s possession.

The Bill became law on 2 January 2013 but will only be actively enforced 18 months thereafter so as to give organisations time to adjust to the new law.

The Act has wide-ranging implications on how organisations collect, use, disclose, access and care for personal data.
