Preparing for a new era in privacy regulation
RA 10173 and its IRR is already in effect and will require changes in how entities handle personal data.
Known as the Data Privacy Act of 2012 , it imposes new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits, and other organizations that process personal data.
Microsoft believes the DPA represents an important step forward for individual privacy rights. It gives Filipino residents more control over their “personal data” (which is precisely defined by the DPA). The DPA also seeks to ensure personal data is protected no matter where it is sent, processed, or stored.
The DPA is also a complex regulation that may require vast changes in how you gather and manage data. Microsoft has a long history of helping our customers comply with complex regulations. When it comes to preparing for the DPA, we provide you the ability to comply.
