Data Protection is the process of safeguarding important information from corruption, compromise or loss. The importance of data protection is increasing today as more data is being created and stored. The laws and regulations relating to data protection are updated progressively. It is good practice for all business owners, employers, employees and companies, whether big or small, to be aware of data protection laws and regulations. Misuse of another person’s personal details may amount to a criminal offence in Malaysia under the Personal Data Protection Act 2010.

At MWKA we advise both companies and individuals on data, privacy and cybersecurity policies, disclaimers and contractual documents and our team is involved in all aspects of regulatory compliance. Our team’s experience in both corporate and commercial matters and litigation gives us a particular advantage when advising clients on Data, Privacy and Cybersecurity options and policies.
