On March 31, 2021, at 13.15 hours, Permanent Secretary of Labour Mr. Suthi Sukosol assigned the Ministry of Labour’s Inspector-General Ms. Bubpha Rueangsud, presided over the opening ceremony of the project to enhance information technology skills among personnel of the Office of the Permanent Secretary of Labour in the central and provincial areas, on the Personal Data Protection Act, B.E. 2564 course. The occasion took place at the Jompol P. Pibulsongkram meeting room, 5th floor, Ministry of Labour.
The Ministry of Labour’s Inspector-General Ms. Bubpha Rueangsud said that this training is very important to create awareness and build understanding, to prepare the personnel to realize the importance of protecting personal information, which is a relevant database. The essence of this law focuses on organizations, agencies, or entities to have a “standard” in the handling of personal information appropriately and adequately when it is necessary to request the use of personal information to prevent any risk that will affect its confidentiality, accuracy, and availability of personal information that is related to the agency as well.
This is the beginning in preparing the Ministry of Labour to create a database to support various forms of public services to understand that this Act must be followed, especially in the section. It also promotes an understanding of how it is related to the Ministry of Labour to get the most benefit, reduce risks and deal with threats, which is a large issue facing the world today and in the future. It is a good sign for Thailand to move towards the digital economy and society, which can be put into practice correctly and safely and help drive the country’s development firmly and effectively.
