Speaking Sessions

10:50 AM Session 1 | PICs vs. PIPs: What the DPA Means for BPOs and Their Clients

One of the key premises of the Data Privacy Act of 2012 is that a personal information controller (PIC) is different from a personal information processor (PIP), but what does that distinction really mean for PICs and PIPs in terms of compliance with the DPA, accountability and liability? The speaker will highlight the provisions of the law and implementing rules that set out the relationships between PICs and PIPs, discuss what controllers and processors need to be concerned about in respect of their outsourcing arrangements, and offer practical suggestions on dealing with these concerns.
