        With the prevalence of technology and increasing connectivity through the internetcybersecurity and data protection are areas that have grown more important in Singapore.

        Since the introduction of the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (“PDPA), it is mandatory for organisations to comply with data protection rules and we strive to help our clients understand that compliance with the PDPA is no longer an option.

        At CNPLaw, we have worked with our clients and helped them navigate through a variety of data protection issues, which include:

        • Reviewing existing policies in order to advise on our client’s compliance with the law
        • Highlighting possible legal risk areas
        • Drafting appropriate documents including personal data protection policies and website terms of use.

        We also advise our corporate clients in relation to ad hoc queries on potential breaches of the law and the PDPA, and highlight data protection issues that may arise in the context of employment or HR policies.
