Personal Data Protection – Managing Personal Information

We often handle different types of personal data (such as full name, NRIC, mobile number, etc.) at work and in organizing events and activities.


Staff who handles personal data at work are to be familiar with the policy and guide below:

· Data Administration Policy

Here are some good practices when collecting and processing data.

1. Obtain consent from individual.

2. Collect minimum sensitive data. Avoid full NRIC number.

3. Protect the data file with strong password and encrypt it.

4. Do not store personal data in public cloud services eg. Google Docs, Dropbox, 

    OneDrive etc.

5. Delete the data when it is no longer required.


Watch this NP video clip on Personal Data Protection > to learn more about how to handle and protect the data collected.
