The Singapore Personal Data Protection Act of 2012 (PDPA) was established to protect the nation’s citizens from privacy breaches, making it illegal for organizations to store copies of Singaporean consumers’ National Registration Identity Cards (NRIC). While the act itself is highly localized, it has international ramifications for any entities operating or doing business in the Republic.

Any organization that fails to comply with the PDPA may suffer fines of up to $1 million. Avoid these penalties and maintain compliance with Enterprise Recon solutions from Ground Labs.
