What are your views on the proposed changes to the PDPA in Singapore?
Basically, it is proposing
- Fines of up to 10% of annual gross turnover or $1m, whichever is higher, for data breach
- Mandating organisations to notify PDPC of a data breach that involves 500 or more individuals, or that is likely to result in harm to affected individuals, as well as to notify the affected individuals themselves.
- Enabling individuals to request a copy of their personal data to be transmitted to another organisation under a new Data Portability Obligation, so that users can switch service providers easily.
- Enabling organisations to collect, use or disclose personal data for "legitimate interests" - including the creation of a blacklist.
