Since the enactment of the Data Protection and Privacy Act (“the Act”) in 2019 and the Regulations thereunder in 2021, the Personal Data Protection Office ( "PDPO") has prioritised raising awareness and assisting entities to develop compliance programs over penalising offenders of the Act. However, that is bound to change as the PDPO has commenced its enforcement measures to ensure compliance with the requirements of the Act. Enforcement of the Act by the PDPO is gaining momentum and therefore, it is important that as a data collector, processor, or controller you understand and ensure compliance with the obligations under the Act.
In this Alert, we share some of the compliance obligations that you ought to be aware of.
