Corporate lawyers Wong Pei-Ling and Lorraine Liew, assisted by Marvin Chua, gave a talk to the management and staff of Dai-Dan Co., Ltd (Singapore Branch) on 10 July 2019. The talk covered the obligations of an organization in the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data, the role of management in managing and containing data breach, and the impact of the Advisory Guidelines on the Personal Data Protection Act for NRIC and Other National Identification Numbers moving forward. The talk was followed by a candid, thought-provoking Q&A session and was well received.

Marvin’s main areas of practice include corporate advisory and general employment matters. Prior to joining CNPLaw, he trained and practised at a leading commercial law firm, under the practice areas of commercial litigation and international arbitration.
With the prevalence of technology and increasing connectivity through the internet, cybersecurity 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
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.
