Abstract

        The Personal Data Protection Act B.E. 2562 (2019) will be fully effective in June 2022 and all Thai academic institutions must comply with this law. The academic institutions have the missions and the operations that need to utilize a large amount of personal data, especially the learners’ private data. Therefore, they are likely to have a risk of violating the personal data, which is considered illegal, according to this law. In order to establish a preventive measure to avoid such violation, as well as to promote the compliance practice that is in line with the international principles and the current laws relating to personal data protection, all institutions and their staff at all levels are required to be fully aware of such potential problems and to understand the basic principles of the personal data security and the main points of this law.
