The 3-day course is very well structured. It presents an overview of the data protection law
in the AP region in a practical and concise way. Speakers are all clear and experienced and
they are able to share their experience and views on interesting cases. The online participation
is good and almost seamless, except for the small technical glitch on the audio on
the first day afternoon. Many thanks to you all.

in an interesting manner so as to engage class participants and encourage interaction.
A lot of effort was also put into designing the course materials as well as getting
the participants prepared for the exam.


Very informative. Materials were thoroughly researched.

Good session. Interesting and interactive. Instructors are engaging and knowledgeable.
Better understanding of the data protection requirements for Singapore, India and Hong Kong.

A good experience with online learning; it works.

Leong Kiah PUA
Chief Information Security Officer Asia

It is great! I was skeptical about doing the course online at first but Celine, Lyn and William
have made the entire course very engaging and interesting. I particularly appreciate that
a lot of the conversation/points were not just for the purpose of taking the exam
but also the current situation and development on privacy laws as well as practical
tips useful for our work. A lot! But I particularly enjoyed Day 1 morning session on
the evolution of privacy laws - it gave an extremely good overview.

Eunice Mah
Legal Counsel

Exceptionally good. The online interaction has been the best I have seen for an online course.
I was so pleasantly surprised by the level of interaction. It was so engaging! Directly relevant to
the certification I am to take. You could see the customisation of content through each step.
Instructors were very practical. Very clear. It takes consummate skill to be that good.
Even complex material can be explained well when you have expert trainers.

Padraig Walsh
Partner, Tanner De Witt

The trainers were extremely experienced and the pace of the course is just right. I've learned a lot from
this course and am looking forward to using the knowledge in my course of work. I've learned many things!
It's hard to pinpoint on one but it's good to know countries are stepping up their privacy game and
setting GDPR as the golden standard.

Lynn Chng
Business Services & Compliance Manager

Great experience, I was hesitant at first but definitely turned out to be as well as an in-person training.
Interactive, engaging and knowledgeable trainers. It was great covering exam strategy, techniques and
going through questions.

Adelene Seah

The course was very helpful in helping me have a broad understanding of the privacy laws and
practices in the respective countries that were discussed.

Very informative and interactive class. One thing I learnt from the class is the rights of data subjects
in Hong Kong, Singapore and India.

Very good workshop, good content and instructors.

Course Participant - September 2020

The training was enriching and enjoyable. Excellent content and exam tips shared.
Trainers are knowledgeable, engaging and helpful. The admin support provided was very good too,
especially with the Zoom setup. This is the best course I've attended in awhile.

Legal Counsel

Excellent. Straits Interactive has a good set up and the trainers really know their stuff. One thing that
I have learnt is that there are commonalities between different data privacy laws in Asia.
I expected that they would all be very different from one another .

Course Participant - November 2020

The CIPP/A training has been really good by all 3 trainers Lyn, Celine and William. I loved how the trainers
all shared the practical and pragmatic of what is for exam taking purposes and what is really operational.
