The Personal Data Protection Act (Singapore)

While the Personal Data Protection Act can be described as ‘lighter touch’, it is an early adopter of the extraterritorial effect, which governs personal data collected, even if the individual does not have a presence in Singapore. While many exemptions exist in the PDPA, it introduces rights such as access and rectification (‘correction’), with heavy emphasis on data security, to prevent unauthorised access, collection, disclosure, use, copying and other risks.

Trunomi’s solution for the Personal Data Protection Act includes Consent Management, DSR Automation and Data Minimization.
