Data protection legislation study postponed

Bookmark and Share

The report on regional data protection regulations in Asia has been postponed due to expectations of legislation changes.

According the NAID President Scott Fasken, “At the rate we see legislation in the region changing, any study of the current laws would likely be outdated shortly after it was completed or even before. It simply does not make sense to spend the resources necessary for a study that will have such a short shelf life.”

In the meantime, the association is considering other initiatives to increase awareness on information destruction, service provider qualifications and the importance of strong regulatory guidance.

Input from NAID-Asia members will be the driving force on such initiatives. A committee meeting will be scheduled in November for this reason and to set the strategic agenda for the coming year.
