Data PrivacyΒ 

𝐂𝐀𝐏𝐓𝐔𝐑𝐄𝐃 𝐈𝐍 𝐋𝐄𝐍𝐒 |Β  The Tarlac Agricultural University (TAU) hosts a seminar-workshop on the Data Privacy Act of 2012: Safeguarding Employee and Employer Information at the TAU Agri-Tourism Hostel Function Hall, 3 May.

The Records Management Unit (RMU), headed by its Chief, Ms. Zenaida C. Sahagun, convenes representatives from different units/offices for a morning seminar and an afternoon discussion followed by a workshop session to educate TAU employees on the importance of safeguarding the information for both employee and employer as embodied in Republic Act 10173, a landmark legislation in the Philippines that mandates the protection of personal data collected, processed, and stored by government and private entities.Β  This event provides invaluable insights into the significance of protecting personal and sensitive data in today’s digital age.

Atty. Michael R. Santos, the Chief of Complaint And Investigation Division of the National Privacy Commission, serves as the Resource Speaker.Β  In his lecture, he highlights the distinction between personal and sensitive personal information and underscored that while personal information and sensitive personal information encompass basic details such as names, addresses, and contact information, sensitive personal information includes more delicate data such as race, ethnicity, marital status, age, color, religion, political affiliations, identifications, and special documents, health records, and biometric information. Understanding the distinction of these data is crucial for TAU to implement appropriate safeguards and protocols to protect individuals’ privacy rights.Β
