Data Privacy Compliance Seminar-Workshop

Makati Diamond Residences

2019 marks the third year of the existence of the National Privacy Commission (NPC) since its constitution last March 2016 as the main implementing agency of Republic Act (RA) No. 10173 otherwise known as the Data Privacy Act (DPA) of 2012. Whereas the past years (2017-2018) saw the NPC and Data Privacy Practitioners going around the country to raise the level of awareness of government agencies, private companies and even self-practicing professionals as well as those handling personal information, year 2019 is now more of addressing the compliance aspect of all these companies, agencies and self-practicing professionals known under the law as Personal Information Controllers (PICs) and Personal Information Processors (PIPs).

In accordance with the five (5) pillars of compliance put in place by NPC, to wit:

  1. Commit to Comply – Appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO)
  2. Know your Risks – Conduct a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA)
  3. Be Accountable – Write your Privacy Management Program (PMP) and Privacy Manual
  4. Demonstrate your Compliance – Implement Privacy and Data Protection Measures
  5. Be prepared for Breach – Regularly Exercise your Breach Reporting Procedure

All PICs and PIPs should now be in the process of conducting their Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs) and writing their respective Privacy Management Programs (PMPs) and Privacy Manuals (PMs).

But how do these PICs and PIPs ensure that what they are doing are in accordance with the requirements set out by the NPC?

Learn everything you need to know about complying with the DPA of 2012 on this two-day seminar-workshop.
