Public Consultation Paper 1/2018: The Implementation of Data Breach Notification

The Public Consultation Paper (PCP) No. 1/2018 entitled The Implementation of Data Breach Notification is intended to solicit feedback from data users and/or relevant parties pertaining to personal data breach management. Personal data breach has become a global threat. Therefore, in light of this, the Personal Data Protection Commissioner (Commissioner) is going to implement Data Breach Notification (DBN), which is currently having practised worldwide.

Objectives: The implementation of DBN is aimed to assist data users in personal data breach management. Basically, it is a mechanism where data users will give notification, informing the authority and the affected/relevant parties where a breach has occurred in an organization. The DBN serves as proactive steps taken by data users to contain the damage caused by a breach incident. Data users should be able to demonstrate their commitment and accountability when addressing the breach. In addition, the DBN enables the enforcement authorities/regulators to conduct investigation thoroughly, transparently and fairly. The DBN is expected to be implemented by end of 2018 by way of imposing conditions to the certificate of registration issued by the Commissioner to the data users. In this regard, the Commissioner welcomes the feedback to this paper and suggestions of other criteria (if any) to be set for the implementation of DBN as stated in the consultation paper.

The deadline for submitting your feedback is on the 21st August 2018 (Tuesday). Feedback can be submitted to pcpdp@pdp.gov.my.

IMLC 2018: Future of Lawyering: Fight or Flight?

I will be speaking at one of the Breakout Sessions of International Malaysia Law Conference held on 14 to 17 August 2018. My session will be on 14 August, 3pm.


Are wood-paneled offices and the colourful display of boundless volumes of law reports a thing of the past. Has the time come to embrace all that is technology by going completely online and living in `the cloud’. Are
we ready for virtual law offices, and building and maintaining lawyer-client relationships completely online? How can we compete with non-lawyers offering legal services, and AI replacing human interaction with legal templates and algorithms that make lawyering seem easy. What is the road ahead for the legal profession?
