It recognises the rights of an individual to protect their personal data from misuse, including rights to access and correction of personal data.

As respective stakeholders often handle and come across customers, visitors and employees personal data, it is critical they understand how the PDPA can affect their work and policies. Thus, it is important to review and re-evaluate existing policies and processes to align with the Act.
