How to address the No. 1 root cause of PDPA violations?

The Singapore PDPC is the most active data protection regulator in ASEAN, as measured by the number of enforcement decisions it has taken to date. The number one type of breach among all enforcement decisions is the Breach of Protection in PDPA.
Join us to learn about the No. 1 channel through which protection breaches have occurred and how you can protect your organization by being able to detect and block such breaches when they occur.

As our esteemed authorities have said, it is not a question of “if,” but “when.”
So, don’t be the next organization to be penalized by PDPC for breaches of protection.
