A New Era of Personal Data Protection

22 Sep 2023

A New Era of Personal Data Protection

After a six-year delay, Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat (DPR) finally passed the Personal Data Protection (PDP) Bill in September 2022. The passage of the PDP Law marks a new era in the management of personal data in Indonesia, especially in the digital realm and makes Indonesia the fifth country in Southeast Asia after Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines to have implemented personal data protection laws. 

As digital data collection and processing becomes more widespread and easier, the urgency to finalize a comprehensive personal data protection regulation grows. With a clear legal basis, personal data protection will have stronger guarantees. Having such regulations in place is also important for the sustainability of the digital economy.

What are the next steps to take?  

Cyberattacks cause a lot of losses to many agencies or companies, be it government databases, financial institution networks, military information, and many more.

In the concept of personal data protection, the protected party is every individual. Meanwhile, the obligated parties are the government and the private and public sectors, both outside and inside Indonesia. The PDP Law will be considered comprehensive if it regulates all these parties.

For now, companies should start proactively looking for solutions or the most efficient ways to protect their systems, networks, software, data, and information systems from potential attacks. This is because some of the provisions in the PDP Law have already come into force.

Perkom has partnered with Cisometric who has the experience of assisting with compliance mapping that will enable your company to meet the requirements of the Personal Data Protection Law. Our solution will refer to common best practices in the market, both in Indonesia and abroad.

We help organizations build a personal data inventory, which includes identifying the types of personal data they collect, process, and store, the sources of that data, and the purposes for which it is collected and used.

At the end of the consultation process, we will provide a detailed report that includes a comprehensive list of recommendations for improvement, and a plan for ongoing compliance and personal data privacy management.
