Workshop Description

With accelerating growth in data-centric technologies such as Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and gig economy, there is an exponential increase in the volume of personal data generated, collected and processed around the world and in Singapore. The new Personal Data Protection (Amendment) Bill 2020 just passed on 2 November 2020 seeks to strengthen the accountability of organisations, to recalibrate the balance between individual’s consent and organisational accountability to harness data for appropriate and legitimate purposes, to grant greater consumer autonomy over their own personal data, and to strengthen the effectiveness of enforcement efforts by the Personal Data Protection Commission (“PDPC”).

The amendments to the PDPA are timely in the fast-changing landscape of the digital economy, and bring Singapore’s personal data protection laws up to date and aligned with international standards, such as the GDPR.

This workshop identifies and communicates key legislative and regulatory requirements, assesses, documents and reports potential areas of non-compliance with regard to policies, procedures and business activities. It assists in the integration of procedures to ensure compliance, as well as prepares management report for follow-up.

It includes the Introduction to Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA), Data Protection Provisions and Do Not Call Provisions with the overview of the PDPA 11 Key Obligations, Role of Data Protection Officer (DPO), Create an Organisation’s Data Inventory Map (DIM) and Identify Possible Areas of Non-Compliance), Develop a Process for Dispute Resolution, Training and Communications and managing Data Breaches.

History of Everest Innovation

Everest Innovation was first conceived in 1997 in the midst of the worst economic recession in South East Asia. During this period of gloom and doom, when currencies tumbled and businesses collapsed, the founder and his regional support team asked if they could find smarter and better ways of running a business which, not only overcome the crisis, but in fact capitalises on it.

Equipped with a captivating vision, the founder led his team in an all-out effort to reinvent and revitalise HP Product Support Centers across South East Asia. The team emerged as heroes, achieving 150% to 200% sales quota in ALL product lines (in US dollars, despite collapsing local currencies) with stellar profit margins, and thereby winning both Industry-wide Customer Satisfaction awards and Reseller Satisfaction awards.

This spectacular achievement had also won the team the Best Support Center in the World citation from a Worldwide HP Vice President. 

Since the incorporation of Everest Innovation was in 2001, the team of consultants have already trained and coached more than a hundred thousand professionals in 25 cities across 15 countries throughout Asia Pacific. The main countries are Singapore, Malaysia, China, Japan, Thailand, South Korea, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan and India.
