Data Privacy Law Services
As more data becomes digitized, and more personal information is shared online, protecting one’s data privacy is becoming important. All businesses in the Philippines, regardless of size and nature, are now mandated to comply with the Republic Act No. 10173 or the "Data Privacy Act of 2012” to ensure the protection of personal data collection and processing.
Now, data is being monetized, and companies are considering data as one of the most important assets of their business. Protecting your stakeholders’ information and data privacy is essential in avoiding hefty penalties, fines, and costs that may arise from security breach incidents, government sanctions, and reputational damage. But most importantly, you have to understand that protecting your stakeholders’ data privacy is essential in building the trust of your stakeholders such as your partners, employees, and customers.
