ASEAN Data Management Framework, Cross Border Data Flows, IMDA (Presentation by Kevin Shepherdson, CEO of Straits Interactive)

On 22 January 2021, the 1st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Digital Ministers’ Meeting (ADGMIN) approved the ASEAN Data Management Framework (DMF) and Model Contractual Clauses for Cross Border Data Flows (MCCs). The initiatives were developed by the Working Group on Digital Data Governance chaired by Singapore.

The ASEAN DMF and MCCs are key resources and tools for ASEAN businesses to utilise in their data-related business operations.

The DMF provides a step by step guide for businesses, SMEs, to put in place a data management system, which includes data governance structures and safeguards. Good data management practices are key to help businesses unlock the value of data while ensuring adequate safeguards.
