Memorandum of Agreement with Islamic International University of Malaysia

22 March 2019

Straits Interactive signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with Islamic International University of Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur on 22 March 2019. We will be collaborating on research and training to enhance data protection competencies for Malaysians.

The commissioner of Malaysia’s Personal Data Protection Department was there to witness the signing and announced that the commission will support our joint courses especially in putting together a certification course for Malaysian companies.

He spoke on changes and reviews being made on the local PDPA. These include appointment of a DPO, data breach notification, cross border transfer alignment, and the need for a privacy programme among other things.

We also launched our new book “99 Privacy Breaches To Beware” of in Malaysia.
