Singapore updates guidelines on data breach notification, accountability

Singapore updates guidelines on data breach notification, accountability (Laws, Policy, Regulations)

With businesses fumbling, Singapore must take more care in data aspirations Singapore government has been opening up user data access to ease information exchange and business transactions, but it should observe some caution as major organisations continue to slip up over security. This prompted PDPC to propose a set of "Data Innovation Provisions" in the act to provide clarity for organisations using personal data for specific, defined business purposes without the need to consent. It now was seeking public feedback on several areas regarding its proposed data portability and data innovation provisions, including conditions under which such provisions would apply, scope of data covered and exceptions to such provisions, as well as when organisations would be able to use personal data without consent for what business purposes. We are taking firm steps to position Singapore as a trusted data hub in the global digital economy by seeking feedback on the proposed data portability and innovation provisions, as well as test-bedding data breach notification measures."
