Indonesia passes much-anticipated personal data protection bill

Indonesia has passed a much anticipated personal data protection bill. A series of leaks since 2019 involving government agencies and private companies prompted Parliament to take action. The new law includes corporate fines and jail terms for those found to have mishandled data. The biggest fine is 2% of a corporation’s annual revenue and could see their assets confiscated or auctioned off. Individuals can also be jailed for up to six years for falsifying data for personal gain or up to five years for gathering personal data illegally.
