Personal Data Protection Act 2010: How Far Am I From Compliance?
By Professor Abu Bakar Munir, University of Malaya

Privacy does matter. Personal data does need to be protected. This is, precisely, what the Personal Data Protection Act 2010 (PDPA) seeks to do. If the information is valuable enough to be collected, then it is valuable enough to be carefully managed and protected, just as much as any other corporate assets. No organisation should believe that it has the right to ignore its legal obligations under the PDPA. Compliance is a must.

Professor Abu Bakar Munir is an internationally renowned scholar, expert and consultant on ICT Law and data protection law. He is Professor of Law and former Dean of the Faculty of Law, University of Malaya. He is also a Visiting Professor at several universities in Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East and Europe.

Professor Abu Bakar Munir is the author of several books and his most recent work; Personal Data Protection in Malaysia: Law and Practice published in October 2010 is a must-read book that provides guidance to comply with the PDPA 2010. As the Adviser to the Government of Malaysia on data protection he was instrumental in the development as well as the passing of the Act.
