The Malaysian government gazetted the Personal Data Protection Act 2010 (PDPA) in June 2010 with the objective of regulating the collection, processing, use and storage of personal data for commercial transactions. With the PDPA in effect, it is imperative for organizations to have in place proper safeguards and an effective personal data protection & privacy framework to ensure compliance. It is also important for organizations to realize that violation of the act will result in risks of legal penalties as well as reputational risks.
