I am very pleased that the interview by TaiwanPlus News : “#taiwan Ranked Top 1 for #cyberattacks in 2023” was released on the same date while Taiwan Legislative Yuan passed the recent revisions of Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) . Two major changes of PDPA will take place following this revision : First, an independent data protection authority will be set up in 3 years(and a preparatory office will probably take shape in the coming months) ; secondly, the max. penality against data infringements of private organizations is greatly increased to NTD 15 million( approx. US 500 thousand) and the authority could issue the fine directly without asking the organization at issue to make necessary adjustments first.
Glad that these changes brought by this revision echo my words in the interview : The government is hightening the cooperation across departments to speed up its actions against online crimes, in addition, the private sector shall work with the public sector to ensure a safe cyberspace. Certainly there is more to be done/dicussed in the future.
