Seminar for awareness of personal data protection 2012

The Personal Data Protection Department of Malaysia (PDPD) (Jabatan Perlindungan Data Peribadi Malaysia) held the above event on 9 February 2012 at Royale Chulan Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.

In this seminar, Tuan Haji Abu Hassan Ismail, the Director General of the PDPD announced that the enforcement date of the Personal Data Protection 2010 (PDPA) will be announced in due course as the PDPD is at the midst of setting up.
