Regular readers might have noticed the disappearance of articles relating to the Personal Data Protection Commission’s decisions lately. However, as news of the “largest” data breach in Singapore came out, I decided to look into this area again.
My lack of interest paralleled the changing environment, which allowed me to keep up-to-date on them:
- The PDPC removed their RSS feed for the latest updates;
- I am not allowed to monitor their website manually; and
- The PDPC started issuing shorter summaries of their decisions, which makes their work more opaque and less interesting.
Looking at this area again, I wanted to see whether the insights I gleaned from my earlier data project might hold and what would still be relevant going forward.
