IHRP Straits Interactive Event 23 Jan (Registration is now closed)

Date & Time
23 Jan 2019 9:00AM to 10:30AM

IHRP Office. Lifelong Learning Institute #05-02, Lift Lobby A, Eunos Rd 8, Lifelong Learning Institute, 408601

Data and privacy breaches have made the headlines in 2018. The quantum of fines have gone up in 2018. And in 2019, we are likely to see an increase in such incidents and enforcement by the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC).

One of the aggravating factors has been whether firms were able to demonstrate accountability, and having a Data Protection Officer (DPO) that is competent is key.

Many firms have been found to be lacking a DPO and it is a mandatory role HR will need to ensure it is highlighted to management and the position filled by someone with the right competency.

Furthermore, HR needs to be aware of data protection compliance, as HR collects and maintains sensitive data from employees and candidates. Data such as Singapore NRIC, passport, marital and educational information and other personal data are all subjected to the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA).

Join IHRP and Straits Interactive for this complimentary breakfast talk on:

  • the top five trends in data protection for 2019
  • recent enforcements in data protection in Singapore and how to demonstrate accountability
  • upcoming Singapore Data Protection Trustmark
  • privacy operational compliance framework and programmes available to fast track competency and journey to compliance
  • tapping government funding for training, consulting and systems in Data Protection
  • certifications available for DPOs

Closing Date for Registrations: 16 January 2019. Do note that due to limited seats, registration is based on first come, first served basis. 1.5 CPD hours will be awarded for this talk. Registration starts at 8.30 am with light refreshments.
