On February 8, Nopparat Lalitkomon, senior associate, and Thammapas Chanpanich, associate, both in the firm’s corporate and commercial group in Bangkok, delivered a joint Thai-language webinar entitled “Personal Data Protection Guidelines for Insurance Industry.”

  • Key principles of personal data collection;
  • Scope of establishing the principle of legality for insurance companies;
  • Notification of data collection and data processing activities in accordance with the law;
  • Procedures of execution between insurance companies and their counterparties; and
  • Managing personal data collected prior to the effective date of the PDPA.
