The Personal Data Protection Act 2010 came into operation on 15 November 2013. The governing authority is the Personal Data Protection Commissioner under the Minister of Communications and Multimedia.
As most Internet Businesses in Malaysia are still in the dark over the enforcement of the PDPA on the operation, principles and application of the act, speaker Mr. Noriswadi Ismail (Noris), the Co-Founder and Managing Consultant of Quotient Consulting was kind enough to drop by EasySpace to conduct a talk so that online businessmen have a deeper understanding of the act and its implications.
Quotient Consulting is a 360-degree data protection boutique consulting firm based in Kuala Lumpur and London.
More about our speaker, Mr. Noris:

The seminar kick-started at 9.00am sharp after free breakfast was provided to our participants. Free flow of snacks and drinks were also available at the mini food bar.
Among the interesting topics covered were as below:
Data – Personal data – this can mean name, contact number and every tiny little details such as the measurement of your waistline
Sensitive Personal data – financial, health data, etc
Data subject – everyone in the conference room (as a sample)
Data user – any legal corporation is a data user (i.e. Exabytes)
Data processor – the sub-contractor outsourced to a 3rd party company (i.e HR)
EasySpace is delighted and proud to provide the venue for fellow online businessmen to get to know more about PDPA as it is learnt that many might still be unaware that their online businesses do not comply with the PDPA.
The event came to a perfect close at around 3.30pm and some eager participants were seen staying back to have a face to face conversation with Mr. Noris.
Last but not least, we thank Mr. Noris for his time and the active participation of our happy audience.
