Managing Service Providers and Contracts: GDPR and PDPA

Managing Service Providers and Contracts: GDPR and PDPA

28 March 2019, 2.30 pm - 5.30 pm
Singapore Academy of Law, Stamford 1, #08-08, The Adelphi, 1 Coleman Street, S179803 



The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (25 May 2018) (GDPR) has far reaching implications for many Singapore businesses with relevant connecting factors with the EU.The GDPR often poses a challenge to compliance or regulatory officers, given the absence of clear and consistent business and legal precedents, within a backdrop of multiple different privacy laws. Significant time is spent on specific obligations and operational processes, relating to contractual obligations, for human capital and technology related services.

In order to establish a robust service provider and contract management system, how would you:

  • ensure you are maintaining accurate records of personal data handled by you and your service providers, as controllers or processors;
  • demonstrate effective compliance with GDPR and PDPA, including breach and complaint management; and
  • position your business towards obtaining data protection trustmark in Singapore.

Join us as we discuss the specific points of concern, explore certain approaches and methods, and evaluate relevant contractual template terms.


  • Brief background on GDPR, with a focus on key differences compared with PDPA
  • Understanding the business and legal risk matrix for your business
  • Drafting of relevant contractual terms
  • Your compliance role in the process

This session will benefit inhouse counsels or compliance officers who deal with service providers, and negotiate contracts relating to human capital and technology related services. Practitioners who advise businesses on similar topics will also find this session fruitful.Seats are limited.
