Seminar on Data Privacy Act compliance set for October 11

This is a press release from the Disini & Disini Law Office.

All businesses rely on the personal information of employees, partners, and clients, among others, for their day-to-day operations. When these are compromised, not only is there a breach of the Data Privacy Act of 2012, but there is also the risk of losing the goodwill of the people involved. Consequently, their confidence in your business is also compromised.

"Countdown to Data Privacy," a symposium organized by Disini & Disini Law Office, aims to educate organizations, regardless of complexity and breadth, on the nuances of complying with the DPA. In doing so, participating organizations shall be in a superior position to fulfill the requirements of the law and to maintain the integrity, confidentiality, and security of the personal information they hold. In turn, they shall be better equipped to preserve the goodwill reposed upon them by their employees, partners, and clients.

Brought to you by Disini & Disini Law Office, eLegal, and Data Privacy Philippines, "Countdown to Data Privacy" is co-presented by Dayanan Business Consultancy and ProtectData, in partnership with IDESS Interactive Technologies, Rappler, 97.9 Home Radio, Wheninmanila.com, BusinessMirror, Net25 TV Pambansang Almusal, 105.1 Crossover FM, ManilaMash, PSST.PH and InterAksyon of TV5.

Helmed by recognized authorities in the field of data privacy, "Countdown to Data Privacy" hopes to assist organizations in fully aligning the DPA. National Privacy Commission Commissioner Raymund Liboro and NPC Deputy Commissioners Ivy Patdu and Francis Acero, together with the Disini Data Privacy Core Team led by JJ Disini, shall share their insights on the methods by which organizations should undertake their own compliance processes, as well as on critical issues such as the role of information security in the compliance process, the best practices for breach management, the impact of the DPA on certain industries, and the proper application of the exceptions set forth in the DPA.

As the compliance period draws ever closer to conclusion, it is imperative that all organizations are properly equipped with the means to comply with the DPA. For organizations that have yet to begin their own compliance processes, the road to compliance begins today.

"Countdown to Data Privacy" is also sponsored by Sun Life Financial and Citibank.
