Safeguarding Your Business & Data
DATA BREACHES – Not If, But When
Since 2015, more than 28,600 complaints have been made against various organisations in Singapore to the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC).
A data breach exposes personal data in an organisation’s possession or under its control to unauthorised access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal or similar risks. With the recent enhancement of the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) in 2021, the maximum financial penalty for organisations that violate the PDPA has been increased to 10% of annual gross turnover in Singapore or S$1 million, whichever is higher.
Having a Data Protection Management Program in place not only enables an organisation to respond swiftly in managing any data breaches, it also establishes a robust data protection infrastructure. This provides confidence to stakeholders and fosters high trust relationships with customers and business partners.
