Data protection and privacy legislation are being implemented globally, and according to the United Nations, 107 countries have put in place legislation to secure the safety of data and privacy. This Malaysian legislation regulates personal data collection, storage, processing, security, and use.

Personal Data Protection Act

For organizations worldwide, the data protection and privacy legislation being adopted have a significant impact, making it crucial for organizations to build capabilities for implementation, monitoring, and enforcement.

In Malaysia, all individuals and organizations that process personal data in their dealings must comply with the rules set out in the Personal Data Protection Act 2010 (PDPA). The main objective of PDPA protects an individual's personal information from being processed for commercial transactions. Organizations that process personal data such as name, address, id-card number, health information, and email address are required to protect the data from unauthorized access, disclosure, or loss.

Something can prove to be a challenge in today's complex IT environments that commonly consist of servers, routers, databases, applications, and more. These systems are in various ways interconnected, which means that security measures must be implemented throughout the IT environment to be effective. In addition, to ensure the security of systems holding personal data, it is necessary to have a well-structured process that continuously verifies system resilience.
