Tilleke & Gibbins Hosts Webinar on Data Protection Officers under Thailand’s PDPA with Bird & Bird Privacy Solutions

On June 1, 2021, Thailand will become the latest country to require companies to meet strict data protection requirements under the country’s Personal Data Protection Act (the PDPA)—a new data protection law inspired by the European General Data Protection Regulation (the GDPR). This new piece of legislation will include the requirement for some organizations to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO), and for companies acting as the controller or processor of data belonging to data subject within Thailand to obtain consent for their activities in many circumstances.

To assist companies with preparing for this compliance obligation, Tilleke & Gibbins is proud to partner with Bird & Bird Privacy Solutions to provide a webinar entitled “Data Protection Officers under Thailand’s PDPA: Role and Legal Requirements in an Evolving Regulatory Landscape”

Athistha (Nop) Chitranukroh, a partner and director of Tilleke & Gibbins’ corporate and commercial department, and Vincent Rezzouk-Hammachi, Managing Director of Bird & Bird Privacy Solutions, will present the requirements and impact of the PDPA, the role of a DPO, and their position within an organization. By popular demand, the webinar will also include a short update on the legal impact of Brexit on data protection laws for companies with operations in both the EU and the UK.

The webinar will be held on Tuesday, January 19, 2021 from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. (ICT), and will be delivered in English.
