Leap Solutions Asia has become the first cloud computing provider in Thailand to achieve the ISO certification for data privacy management.
This emphasises the stability and security of the cloud service by showing readiness for the Personal Data Protection Act in Thailand.
“Leap Solutions takes personal data protection matters very seriously, whether the data belongs to staff, clients, or partners,” said Nacharie Rujirat, the Managing Director of Leap Solutions, which is part of TCC Technology Group.
The ISO/IEC-27701 is a new standard by the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission to provide guidance for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving a Privacy Information Management System (PIMS).
“This ISO/IEC-27701:2019 certification guarantees our effective personal data management, helping us meet clients’ needs. This also relates to conforming with the recent PDPA Privacy Act,” said Ms. Rujirat.
The Thai Personal Data Protection Act 2019 (PDPA) came into effect in May 2020 as Thailand’s first consolidated data protection law, similar to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The PDPA empowers consumers of data with the rights to erase data and the right to be informed about how their data is used.
