DPR to Pass Personal Data Protection Law
The Personal Data Protection Law Bill (RUU PDP) will be ratified at the Plenary Meeting on Tuesday, as confirmed by House of Representatives' (DPR) speaker Puan Maharani. She believes the new law will protect every citizen from personal data breaches and end various crimes, including unsolicited online loans and doxing. "The ratification of the RUU PDP will be a milestone for Indonesia in protecting the personal data of its citizens from all forms of crime in the digital era," Puan explained in her official statement on Monday.
The bill has been prepared since 2016, with the government's initial draft submitted to the DPR at the end of 2019. The final draft will contain 16 chapters and 76 articles, four more than the initial draft.
