Our thanks to all who joined us on Monday or wrote to us in advance.
The session didn’t run as smoothly as I’d envisaged, but it occurred to me afterwards that this fact was itself valuable input for our submission. Pre-emptively addressing things that non-experts don’t understand is why the guidelines are being proposed in the first place! So, several of the things which led to lengthy “how does this work?” discussions now appear in our submission as areas for improvement in the guidelines.
Here is our submission as we provided it to PDPC.
We’re finally de-mothballing the Singapore Chapter! We’re starting with putting together a submission to PDPC’s current consultation. Please join us on Monday evening if you’d like to join us in doing so.
In the meantime, here is our very-barebones draft as it stands right now.
Join these thought leaders as a much-needed spotlight is shone on legal innovation and technology and address challenges in the legal tech space. Register Now.

Thank you to all who attended the Forum on Falsehoods on February 23!
With the benefit of the presentations and discussion at that session, The Internet Society Singapore Chapter made a written submission [pdf] to the Select Committee.
An Internet Society funded project deploys connectivity to the highest continuously inhabited village in Europe:
“There are not many places in the world without internet.”
This was one of those places.
This is slightly dated (earlier this year) but is interesting reading nonetheless:
User trust: How and why Internet users – including government, private sector and citizens – trust the Internet, and how to build that trust.
Technologies for trust: The technical building blocks for establishing and maintaining trusted networks, applications and services.
Trusted networks: The Internet’s strength is that it is an ever-evolving collection of interconnected networks with distributed ownership and control. Trust is the glue that keeps networks connected and exchanging data.
Trustworthy ecosystem: How the Internet is governed and how it deals with Internet issues.
