fundamentals of the personal data protection act (synchronous e-learning)


Cultivating and keeping a customer is not easy but losing them takes seconds. 

Customers will not hesitate to abandon service providers when they are deemed to have not established steps to safeguard and protect customer’s personal data and information. This will lead to tarnished reputation, loss of revenue and potential future opportunities. While it is challenging for businesses to ensure that customer’s data is not compromised, they can start to take steps towards minimising or eliminating those risks and challenges.

This programme is helpful for appointed Data Protection Officers (DPOs) and any employee in the organisation who are involved in data protection matters. It will deepen their understanding of the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) through introduction of key concepts and equip them with the basic knowledge and skills in complying with the PDPA. This enhanced programme includes an expanded curriculum and comprehensive assessments.
