Submission to PDPC

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.

TraceTogether, Device Management Application, and Privacy

Join the Internet Society Singapore Chapter on Zoom at 7PM on Wednesday 10 March 2021, as we host a lively panel discussion on two very Singaporean online privacy issues that have hit the news recently: TraceTogether and Device Management Application (MOE’s DMA for students’ Personal Learning Devices). Pose questions to our panel of technology, security, and legal experts and share your own thoughts.

Immediately after the webinar ends (8PM) you are also invited to stay on (optional) for the Annual General Meeting of the Internet Society Singapore Chapter and election of the new Executive Committee.
