17 Apr 2023
For breaching the Protection Obligation, a financial penalty of $37,000 was imposed on OrangeTee & Tie for failing to put in place reasonable security arrangements to protect users' personal data in its possession or under its control. A warning was also issued to an individual for using dictionary attack methods to generate telephone numbers which were then used for telemarketing purposes, thereby breaching 48B of the PDPA.
The PDPC also accepted an undertaking from one organisation which implemented remediation plans that rectified the immediate breach and addressed systemic shortcomings to ensure continual compliance with the PDPA.
