14 Jan 2022
A financial penalty of $14,000 was imposed on Nature Society (Singapore) for breaches of the PDPA. First, the organisation failed to put in place reasonable measures to protect personal data on its website database. Second, it did not appoint a data protection officer. Lastly, it did not have written policies and practices necessary to comply with the PDPA.
The PDPC also accepted an undertaking from an organisation which implemented remediation plans that rectified the immediate breach and addressed systemic shortcomings to ensure continual compliance with the PDPA.
