Singapore’s Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) has announced that data breach notification will soon become mandatory in Singapore. However, not all breaches need to be reported. We have prepared this guide to aid businesses in understanding when, to whom and how to notify should they encounter a data breach.
As further guidance and details on the new requirements will be provided by PDPC in due course, we will follow up with an updated guide at the appropriate time.
What is a data breach?
A data breach refers to any unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification or disposal of personal data in an organization’s possession or under its control.
