The adoption of the Personal Data Protection Act has transformed the legal regime for data protection in Singapore. This book explains the history and evolution of data protection in Singapore, highlights issues that will need to be worked out in practice as the new law is implemented, and derives lessons that may be taken from other countries in the region and beyond. Bringing together leading scholars and practitioners in the field, the book will be of interest to the academic, legal, and business communities. Key questions considered in the book include how to reconcile notions of privacy in an information age, and how national laws can regulate an increasingly interconnected world.
