Kbox fined for data privacy breach

Personal data protection act has been around for quite some time now and i am glad that some action is being taken by the authorities against a company that is considered large. Still i hope that this serves as a warning to the smaller companies or property agents. 

Personally i recieved at least 1 non solicated sms everyday and i really hope that this news would spread to stop this bad practice. 

In fact shouldn't some responsibilities fall on the vendor that provide such services?

The Personal Data Protection Commission fined karaoke chain K Box Entertainment S$50,000 for not having sufficient security measures during the 2014 database breach. Credits: PDPC takes action against 11 firms for data privacy breaches
