Here is some information to help you with the process of Register/Update Data Protection Officer(s).
- Under the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (PDPA), organisations are required to develop and implement policies and practices that are necessary to meet its obligations under the PDPA. In particular, organisations are required to designate at least one individual, known as the data protection officer (DPO), to oversee the data protection responsibilities within the organisation and ensure compliance with the PDPA.
- You may refer to www.pdpc.gov.sg/dpo to better understand the roles and responsibilities of a DPO and for guidance on who you should appoint. The appointed DPO should be part of the management team, or at least have a direct line to management.
