Thailand’s new data law aimed at ensuring privacy

Thai citizens’ data privacy is expected to be secured with the Data Protection Act’s enforcement this year after being approved by the cabinet this month.

The new law clearly defines data protection, covering three categories of data owners, data controllers and data processors.

The law will be in line with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation, which will come into effect on May 25 and affects local businesses involved with EU citizens’ data.
