So there’s this article talking about how Malaysia is considering regulating artificial intelligence (AI) applications. Now, this is a big deal because businesses need to stay on top of this and make sure they’re governing the use of these tools properly. And guess who’s talking about it? Kulani Kulasingam, the head of privacy at CelcomDigi Bhd.
Now, the Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation is looking into drafting a bill for AI governance and privacy concerns. And let me tell you, there’s a lot of concern out there. Right now, there are no specific standards or bills for AI globally. It’s like the Wild West out here, trying to figure out what AI even is. But hey, it’s a good thing that everyone is getting involved in the conversation. It’s all about building strong and secure infrastructure, especially in the telecommunications industry where data is so crucial.
But here’s the thing, Kulani wants the telecommunications industry to have a say in the drafting of this bill. They want to contribute and make sure the bill has all the right elements. And I gotta say, that’s a smart move. You want the people who understand the industry to have a voice in these decisions.
So Kulani recently hosted a roundtable session called “Navigating Privacy Challenges in the Digital Age: A Multi-Industry Perspective.” And let me tell you, when it comes to privacy issues, data breaches can be a real pain in the ass. They can happen from both internal and external threats. But CelcomDigi has some high-security standards in place. They subscribe to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards. They take data protection seriously and make sure their customers’ data is safe and sound.
They’re on a continuous journey of building data privacy and ethics. They don’t wait for the government or laws to catch up. They take it upon themselves to improve their practices and learn from other industries. And when it comes to data breaches, they’re not messing around. They have multiple layers of security measures in place. They monitor every access, especially the internal ones. They’re evolving and upgrading their security standards to create a secure environment.
But what about deleting data, you ask? Well, if a customer wants their data deleted, CelcomDigi is on it. They respond within 21 days, as required by law. But they actually try to address it even faster than that. They understand the importance of privacy and they do their due diligence in making sure they fulfill their responsibilities.
So there you have it, folks. CelcomDigi is taking privacy and data protection seriously. They’re proactive in governing the use of AI, they’re involved in the drafting of bills, and they’re constantly working on improving their practices. It’s good to see companies taking responsibility and not waiting for the government to do it all. That’s how progress is made. So let’s all take a page out of CelcomDigi’s book and make privacy a top priority. And hey, if you want more articles like this, you can subscribe to The Edge.
