CTP 3 - Grappling with the Challenges of the Digital Economy
Grappling with the Challenges of the Digital Economy in the Context of Data Protection and Cybersecurity.


Data is the new fuel of the digital economy. Corporates are embracing this digital age with disruptive technologies, leveraging on the Internet-of-Things and cloud solutions, to create new business solutions, such as Proptech, Fintech, Constructech, Healthtech and LogTech. Data in digital form courses through every aspect of operations in corporates, whether in documentation, emails, databases, websites.

A common thread across all these initiatives and activities is the need to collect and comprehend vast amounts of data. Digital data poses significant risks for the organisations which possess them, including accidental disclosure, cybertheft, ransomware attack and phishing. Unauthorised loss or disclosure of such data could result in serious consequences. Organisations could face hefty fines and reputation damage, and their representatives liable for breach of personal data protection law.

Staying up-to-date with developments in Singapore’s personal data protection law as well as those in other jurisdictions, such as the European Union, can help companies avoid the potential pitfalls of the transformation of the global digital economy.
