Singapore Taekwondo Federation fined $30,000 for leak of students’ data

ChannelNewsAsia reports:

The Singapore Taekwondo Federation has been fined S$30,000 after the NRIC numbers of 782 minors were disclosed via PDF documents on its website.

The issue was discovered on May 19 last year when a complainant came across PDF documents with the names and schools of students participating in the 2017 Annual Inter-School Taekwondo Championships, according to the decision published by the Personal Data Protection Commission.
