500 data protection officers to be trained to safeguard company data
17 Oct 2019
Up to 500 data protection officers will be trained over the next year to monitor and assess their own organisation's personal data protection policies and practices, and to identify the risks from the collection, use and storage of personal data. To facilitate this, four data protection-related courses were launched by the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) LearningHub in partnership with the Employment and Employability Institute (e2i) and the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC). The PDPC is also currently working with other training partners like SP, the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants, National University of Singapore Law Academy, and Singapore Management University Academy.
