Indonesia - September 2022

Personal data protection law passed

After six years of deliberations, Indonesia’s House of Representatives approved the Personal Data Protection Bill on 10 September. Modelled on the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Bill aims to regulate all forms of data storage and processing, streamline Indonesia’s disparate data protection regulations, and authorize the creation of a supervising body. Indonesia has struggled with data leaks and security breaches in recent years.
