[Support Event] Seminar CEO Insights: Navigating the Impact of Decree 13 on Customer Data Management

Vietnam’s Decree 13 on Personal Data Protection (PDP) has been in effect for over three months now, beginning on July 1, 2023. In response, businesses are strongly advised to promptly implement measures to safeguard their customers’ personal data. Some notable points from the decree include:

  • Notification of Sensitive Personal Data Processing: Data subject shall receive information regarding the types of personal data being collected, the purposes of collection and processing, and the entities with access to this data.
  • Right to Claim Damage: The data subject has the right to claim damage as prescribed by law when there are violations against regulations on protection of his/her personal data, unless otherwise agreed by parties or unless otherwise prescribed by law. 
  • Outbound Transfer of Personal Data: To transfer personal data of Vietnamese citizens to a location outside the territory of Vietnam, the sender must make a dossier on assessment of impact of outbound transfer of personal data and carry out the procedures.
  • Personal Data Protection Measures: Personal data controller cum processors are required to adopt measures for protecting personal data from the beginning of and throughout the processing of personal data. This includes the necessity to operate on a secure network and the ability to expunge personal data within a 72-hour timeframe, etc.
