Abstract

Singapore's data protection regime is a continually evolving one. Its Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA), which applies to both electronic and non-electronic data, recognises the need to strike a reasonable balance between the need for organisations to collect, use and disclose personal data, with individuals' rights to protect their personal data. This chapter discusses how the PDPA and other laws, such as the Computer Misuse Act and the Criminal Procedure Code, affect data protection on the Internet in Singapore.
