PDPA Preparedness: A Virtual Event Series
Please join us for a series of targeted online workshops aimed to help prepare AMCHAM members before the new PDPA law takes effect at the end of May 2021. Produced by the AMCHAM Digital Economy, Legal, and HR Committees, each event in the series examines a particular aspect of preparation and compliance, and the practical steps required for companies to meet their obligations. Topics will include defining Personally Identifiable Information (PII), getting consent, handling privacy issues in the workplace, managing your data onsite and in the cloud, and reviewing contractual agreements with your service providers.
Episode Event 1: What is Personally Identifiable Information (PII) ?
Understanding what Personally Identifiable Information covers is the cornerstone of PDPA Compliance. How do you reassess what information needs to be kept and what doesn’t, about customers, suppliers and staff? How does PDPA affect the way we manage CRM, e-commerce, accounting, HR, and other business functions and related applications? Who in the company needs to be aware of PDPA requirements, and what’s the best way to train them and develop the right mindset for ongoing compliance?
Join us to hear Montri Stapornkul, Data Protection Officer at DTAC, give a practical perspective on what kinds of data the PDPA covers.
