This monthโ€™s cases emphasise the importance of having strong cybersecurity safeguards and policies in place to ensure that the organisationโ€™s personal data is not accessible to malicious actors.

This includes:
๐Ÿ‘‰ having robust IT access controls and utilising unique passwords nas IDs
๐Ÿ‘‰ conducting regular security reviews to ensure an organisationโ€™s website or database has reasonable security arrangements in place.
๐Ÿ‘‰ strengthening an organisationโ€™s data protection policies to eliminate any security gaps
๐Ÿ‘‰ implementing multi factor authentication for all to limit unauthorised access.

An active effort in the PDPA compliance comes a long way for organisations. They should not take data breaches lightly and should always avoid being complacent with their cybersecurity hygiene.
