The Act makes it compulsory for all organisations to develop and implement policies, train its staff about their policies and whenever requested (whether by government agencies or otherwise), to produce copies of the policies and practices for inspection.
It also makes it compulsory for all organisations to designate a staff to be responsible for ensuring that the organisation complies with this Act and to make available to the public the business contact information of this person. Find out more about the necessary steps for PDPA compliance.
With the coming into force of the PDPA, organisations will have to review all its employee contracts, business contracts, sales terms, website access terms …etc to ensure that there are provisions which protect them against liability under the PDPA.
