SSEK’s managing partner, Denny Rahmansyah, assisted by Saprita Tahir, an associate of the firm, led a legal training session on data protection for the board of PT Indocement Tunggal Prakarsa Tbk, one of the largest cement producers in Indonesia.
The training included Indonesian regulations on handling and transferring personal data, including the personal data of employees, and data localization requirements for companies in Indonesia. Denny also discussed the draft law on personal data protection, which will be the first comprehensive law in Indonesia that specifically deals with the protection of personal data once it is passed.
Denny and Saprita also examined the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection of and processing of personal information within the European Union (EU) and which covers all companies that deal with the data of EU citizens, including non-EU companies. They discussed what actions companies in Indonesia should take in response to the GDPR.
