Programme Introduction

The Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) and the Singapore Business Federation (SBF) are pleased to organise a 2nd Briefing on Personal Data Protection Act, Guidelines for Singapore NRIC & Other National Identification Numbers and Data Protection Trustmark Certification on Thu, 24 Jan 2019.

The Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) was enacted in 2012 to safeguard individuals’ personal data against misuse. It is also to enhance Singapore’s competitiveness and position as a trusted business hub.

From 1 Sep 2019, organisations will be prohibited from collecting, using or disclosing Singapore NRIC and other national identification numbers as well as the retention of physical NRICs except in special circumstances. The new changes to the PDPA are to decrease the risk of unintended disclosure and identification numbers being used for illegal activities such as identity theft or fraud.

At this briefing, the Info-Communications Media Development Authority (IMDA) will share more details of PDPA, the guidelines for NRIC and the Data Protection (DP) Trustmark Certification which will be launched in Jan 2019 to help organisations verify their conformance to data protection standards and practices.

There will also be a Q&A session for employers to seek clarifications on the Act and operational issues that may impact HR and their businesses.
