At dtac, only specific staff are authorized and granted access to customers’ personal data. Random checks are conducted to determine if any staff have accessed or are accessing customers’ personal data without authorization.

In 2018, dtac organized training on the protection of customers’ personal data for its 479 staff members whose work may risk violating the “Privacy Policy 2016”. In addition, internal communications were carried out to promote protection. Assessments were also conducted to check the awareness of data protection among staff with authorized access to customers’ personal data. Checks have not detected any action that may threaten data privacy.
