Given that churches in Singapore have the unique challenges of complying with the PDPA, I thought it would be good to put together a quick video pointing out a common issue churches will face when employing a self-checkin solution via their church management system (ChMS).
In short, if you allow people to go up and initiate searches then it’s considered a data breach because PDPA considers just having a name shown from the database to be a breach. It only becomes worse when phone numbers, ages, dates of birth, addresses, and phone numbers also get pulled up via a search that anyone can utilize.
We recommend testing for yourself with your check-in system like we did with the default RockRMS settings. Pretend to be someone from the public and try to find people and their data via your church check-in kiosk solution.
