Anuwat directs workshop and training for large state-owned enterprise

It was a pleasure for IAS Advisory co-founding partner Mr Anuwat Ngamprasertkul to present and direct a training session and workshop for more than 400 participants from a Thai state-owned enterprise last month.

The subject of the event, on 2nd February 2023, was Thailand’s Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) and its related regulations and what organisations need to do to ensure compliance.

In the training session, participants learnt about the fundamentals of PDPA compliance, including the life cycle of personal data in an organisation’s business operation. Also, how personal data can be justifiably collected, processed, circulated, disclosed and retained and how this aligns with or is required to change under the PDPA. Anuwat also covered how compliance is organised and which business units are involved during the session.

Then, during the workshop, representatives from 10+ business units of the organisation delved into how personal data is actually processed, links up with other units and flows out to external parties in compliance with one of the key legal requirements of the PDPA.
