Singapore’s privacy watchdog has penalised 11 organisations for failing to protect the privacy of customers’ personal data.

Karaoke chain K Box Entertainment Group was imposed with the heaviest fine of S$50,000 for failing to protect personal data of members on its platform under the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA).

Singapore’s data protection legislation authorises slapping a penalty of $1 million per breach on organisations that fail to protect consumers’ personal data.
