Zheng Wencan pointed out that regarding the handling of personal data leaks, the Political Yuan has formulated new practices, including the iRent personal data leak incident, within 3 days the administrative inspection team will conduct administrative inspections in conjunction with the Information Security Institute, and within 10 days for personal data. An investigation report will be prepared for the leak, and a disciplinary decision will be made within 2 weeks of the incident.

The personal information law has not been revised for many years, and the maximum fine for non-government agencies’ violations is 200,000 yuan. Zheng Wencan said that after the assessment of the National Development Council and the Ministry of Digital Affairs, the penalty is too light, and they will promote the revision of the law and increase the penalty; especially all walks of life attach great importance to personal information. Both public and private sectors should pay more attention to data protection.

In addition, the Constitutional Court has ruled that there should be an independent supervision mechanism for the protection of personal data by August next year. Zheng Wencan emphasized that it will be implemented simultaneously in the revision of the personal data law, and these two major tasks will be completed in the shortest possible time.

Zheng Wencan said that since President Tsai Ing-wen took office, she has developed three major goals: digital transformation, digital resilience, and digital sustainability. Over the past six years, Taiwan has invested far more in digital construction than in the past. In particular, the establishment of the Digital Department has enabled digital Goals such as empowerment, information security protection, and digital resilience.

He said that the establishment of the Information Security Institute today is also the culmination of the National Information Security National Team gathering martial arts masters. He hopes that all kinds of martial arts and weapons will be able to use them; , Large-scale information systems must be maintained with new concepts.

The President has asked the Executive Yuan to establish a new system in terms of information security software and hardware budget, dedicated manpower, and all data access and operation SOPs.
