JAKARTA, KOMPAS — The passing of the bill on personal data protection into law is a necessity in the midst of rampant data leakage and vulnerability of information systems in private or government institutions. However, the deliberation of the bill is facing a stalemate if there is no immediate agreement between the government and the House of Representatives regarding a number of crucial aspects.

The existence of the Personal Data Protection (PDP) Law is not only needed to encourage institutions to strengthen the security of people’s data. It is also needed so that in the midst of cross-country data exchange there are rules that are compatible with other countries. Based on data from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development as of April 2020, 128 of 194 countries already have PDP legislation.
