Philippine Data Privacy Law is Signed into Law

Philippine President Benigno Aquino III signed into law the Data Privacy Act of 2012, which is modeled after the EU Data Protection Directive and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Privacy Framework. The Act contains provisions that govern the processing of personal information, the rights of data subjects (e.g., notice, access, and data portability), and the security of personal information (which includes a breach notification requirement).
