Data Privacy Act and its Compliance Requirements

Diamond Suites, Cebu City

Membership Meeting & Forum

What is Data Privacy and how will it affect businesses? With the stage already set for the implementation and enforcement of the Philippine Data Privacy Legislation this September 2017, along with impending deadline for the registration of data processing systems with the National Privacy Commission, no business should be out of the loop and left behind.
