The right approach to information security is critical to achieving PDPA compliance. For many organisations, this requires a significant revision of their security strategy and tactics.
What makes PDPA unique and a challenge is that it requires firms to implement it via a risk-based framework. Since it covers personal data, PDPA focuses on ensuring the correct governance structure, policies and operational practices in place. In addition to monitoring, detection and incident response.
LRQA Nettitude Helps Firms With The Information Security Measures Necessary For PDPA Compliance via:
- Gap assessment against the PDPA standards for information security and incident response practices, to produce a roadmap to compliance.
- Monitoring services to support the information security and incident response aspects of PDPA.
Frequently Asked Questions about Data Privacy Security
What is an incident response policy?
An Incident response plan or policy is a process you create before you experience a cyberattack. This is so that your team has a procedure to follow when you do experience a data breach. LRQA Nettitude follows the CREST Cybersecurity Incident Response process which is broken down into 3 phases: preparation, response, and follow up. Having a breach plan gives you the confidence to quickly nullify any threat to your data privacy security.
Why is data privacy security important?
Although it has always been important, the implications and need for higher security are coming into play now that technology is indispensable to everyday life. Using apps, browsing websites, and shopping online are all examples of how your data will be stored and managed online. For organisations today, the threat of cyber theft is a pertinent one. Having comprehensive data privacy plans in place can reduce and mitigate the risks of such events.
