Indonesia: Slow but steady: the development of personal data protection

After months of drafting and deliberation, Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Informatics (‘MOCI’) issued, in late 2016, a long-awaited regulation on the protection of personal data. MOCI Regulation No. 20 of 2016 regarding the Protection of Personal Data in Electronic Systems (‘MOCI Regulation’) was issued on 1 December 2016.

Rolindrawan, Partner and Senior Associate at SSEK Legal Consultants respectively, assess the current state of Indonesian data protection law in light of the MOCI Regulation.
