PDPA Singapore

The Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) is a Singaporean law that governs the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data by organizations. The law aims to protect individuals’ personal data while also promoting the growth of Singapore’s digital economy. 

What Is PDPA?

The PDPA is a Singaporean law that creates a data security framework for organisations’ collection, use, and disclosure of personal data. Organizations are required by law to acquire individuals’ consent before collecting, using, or disclosing their personal data, and to ensure that the personal data is accurate and secure.   

Individuals have certain rights over their personal data under the PDPA, including the right to view and correct their data, as well as the right to withdraw their consent for the collection, use, or disclosure of their data. 

Why Does Your Organization Need to Be PDPA Compliant?

Compliance with the PDPA is required for organisations in Singapore to protect individuals’ personal data and keep their trust. Failure to adhere with PDPA can result in severe penalties and fines, as well as reputational harm to your organisation.  

For each violation of the PDPA, fines of up to SGD 1 million or 10% of an organisation’s yearly turnover, whichever is greater, are imposed. 

How Does PDPA Impact You and Your Organization?

PDPA requires organizations to comply with several regulations, including:

  1. Consent Obligation: This obligation requires organizations to obtain individuals’ consent before collecting, using, or disclosing their personal data.
  2. Data Breach Notification: Organizations must notify the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) of any data breaches within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach
  3. Data Transfer Requirements: Organizations must ensure that the transfer of personal data outside Singapore is done in accordance with PDPA requirements.
  4. Access and Correction Obligation: This obligation gives individuals the right to access and correct their personal data held by organizations.
  5. Protection Obligation: This obligation requires organizations to implement technical and organizational measures to protect personal data from unauthorized access, disclosure, or theft.
