Data protection

Past Events

This webinar takes place from 3pm to 4:10pm (Singapore time) on Wednesday, 19 January 2022.


Members of the Singapore Academy of Law (SAL) who want to take advantage of their SAL credit dollars can sign up with SAL. Do note that SAL's system is unable to cater to promo codes specifically provided to you by ABLI.




According to the Google & Temasek / Bain, e-Conomy SEA 2019 report, Indonesia is the largest and fastest growing Internet economy in Southeast Asia, on track to cross the $130 billion mark by 2025. The 2020 edition of that report highlights that Indonesia’s digital economy continues to grow at double digits during the pandemic year.


With no omnibus legislation in place, data protection in Indonesia is currently regulated by several specific laws, such as the Law on Electronic Information and Transactions. This is about to change. After several years in the making, the upcoming Personal Data Protection Law is making its final way through the House of Representatives, and may soon be formally enacted barring further delays.


Once passed, the new law will be the first comprehensive law in Indonesia dedicated to the issue of data protection. It is expected to apply to all sectors, introducing new key roles and provisions on personal data protection, both electronically and otherwise.


Organised by the Asian Business Law Institute, this webinar will look at the key changes, concepts and provisions under this upcoming legislation with a detailed presentation, followed by a dialogue session on what this new law means for lawyers, privacy practitioners and businesses across the region, what the compliance challenges are, and how stakeholders can prepare early to get a head start.


This practical session is designed for professionals, legal or otherwise, who deal with data issues on a daily basis or who have an interest in data protection and interact with Indonesian parties regularly.


When is this webinar scheduled?


This webinar will take place from 3pm to 4:10pm (Singapore time) on Wednesday, 19 January 2021. Please be mindful of the time difference if you are joining from outside of Singapore.

Is this webinar accredited for continuing professional development (CPD) points for Singapore-admitted lawyers?


This webinar is pending accreditation 1 public CPD point. Attendees who wish to claim CPD points are reminded to provide their AAS numbers or other number issued by the Singapore Institute of Legal Education (SILE) during registration. You are required to strictly follow the attendance policy of SILE before CPD points can be awarded. Please refer to www.sileCPDcentre.sg for more information.



I am qualified in a jurisdiction other than Singapore. Will attending this webinar entitle me to claim relevant CPD-equivalent points in my own jurisdiction?


The answer to this question depends on the rules of the relevant governing body in your jurisdiction. In the past, we have issued letters of attendance accompanied by actual Zoom log-in records to assist non-Singapore-qualified attendees to claim their professional learning points. Therefore, if a letter of attendance and a Zoom record are all you need, we will be able to help. Likewise, we have issued the same set of documents to professionals other than lawyers who may also have such continuing education requirements.


However, if the rules of your jurisdiction require an event to be accredited, we regret that this session will not entitle you to claim points outside of Singapore.



I am a member of the Singapore Academy of Law (SAL), and would like to use my SAL credit dollars to sign for the webinar. How do I do so?


SAL members who want to take advantage of their SAL credit dollars can sign up with SAL. Do note that if you sign up there, you will receive an invoice generated by SAL. SAL is a GST-registered organisation. ABLI does not charge GST and will absorb GST on its own for registrations via SAL.


If you are from any of ABLI's Founding Partners and would like to enjoy the discount to which you are entitled, you will need to sign up on Eventbrite as SAL's system does not cater specifically to such arrangements.


This is the same case if you have received any special promo code directly from ABLI.



What if I am unable to attend this webinar after registration? Are the fees paid refundable?


Unfortunately, the payments made are not refundable. If you are unable to attend the webinar, we request that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can let you transfer your slot to your colleague.


I am interested in this webinar but unable to make it for the live session. If I register, will a recording be made available to me?


Yes, a recording of the webinar can be made available upon request via a private link, though it is important to bear in mind that viewing the recording will not entitle you to any public CPD points. In principle, we only provide recording upon request by a paid attendee.



Will the materials presented at the webinar be made available to attendees?


The materials can be made available to attendees if the speakers so consent as they are the copyright owners of their presentation materials. Those who wish to receive such materials are advised to write to catherine_shen@abli.asia after the webinar for more information.



I want to sign up for the webinar but my organization requires registration to be done by other means, such as by sending an invoice to a dedicated portal . How do I register in this case?


Please write to catherine_shen@abli.asia so that ABLI can arrange an alternative way of registration for you, taking your needs into consideration.



Who can I contact if I have more questions?


Please write to catherine_shen@abli.asia for any other query you may have about this webinar.
