The proposed Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) provides a comprehensive framework for the processing of personal data. This framework balances the legitimate needs of organisations to collect and process data against the rights of individuals. The law sets out new duties and obligations on companies and organizations in the country. Similarly, customers and employees are given certain rights in relation to their personal data. More importantly, companies and organisations can be held criminally liable for their action or inaction under the law. The PDPA is the beginning of the end of business as usual as far as data processing is concerned. A good corporate governance in an organisation will often involve the preparation towards compliance with new rules and regulation. Failure to do so will have serious implication on the top management as any breaches of the PDPA by an organization may give rise to the allegations that the management and officers are in breach of their duties. And the first step to ensuring compliance is to understand the legislation.
