    by Sam Pfeifle on May 3, 2018

    While much of the world is focused on the privacy developments in Europe, where the General Data Protection Regulation is sucking much of the oxygen from the room, Asia has quietly been very busy, indeed, on the privacy front.

  • Privacy in Singapore: A Light, If Frequent, Touch

    by Sam Pfeifle on July 12, 2017

    In January, the Personal Data Protection Commission in Singapore will celebrate its fifth anniversary. While any number of privacy regulators have popped up since the PDPC’s establishment – from the Philippines’ to Japan’s to Ghana’s – it’s still easy to think of Singapore as a relatively young governing body.
