IEEE Singapore CS is pleased to announce the upcoming SCS seminar on IT Law. IEEE Singapore CS members will enjoy a 10% discount for every group of 3 sign-ups.

What’s next after having put in place the procedures and policies to govern your organization’s data privacy and security? Having rules in place does not mean your people know them. Or that they will be sufficient in practice. Moreover, do you know what to do when a data breach occurs?

Attend this power-packed seminar and glean best practices and tips on how to comply with the law and the newly released PDPC guidelines. Know how to evaluate and manage your collection activities. Know what it is you need to do if a breach occurs and you need to control and mitigate the damage.

People have already been convicted of offences under the PDPA. One business paid $78, 000 in fines; another $27,000. The maximum penalty is $1 million. SMEs cannot afford that kind of punishment. Join us in this session to lower your risks of being punished.
