Author(s): KorakodTongkachok & ThongphonPromsaka Na Sakolnakorn

This research article aimed to study legal innovations in the personal data section of Thailand. Personal data was found to be related to a person's right to privacy, which was a fundamental right of a person. Because it was information that informed or identified the subject of the data subject, personal data was required by law to provide protection. Measures or criteria must be established for who will use the personal data. For example, government agencies, private entrepreneurs, or any other person who was the data controller or processor of personal data, which must comply with the law. Therefore, as the public sector, the entrepreneurship, and the people who entered the digital age, personal data had to be protected. Innovating to support the law of the data controller must obtain the consent of the data subject prior to the collection, use, or processing of that personal data. When protecting personal data was a priority, EU countries, the United States, or ASEAN countries had specific personal data protection laws. Thailand had a concept of personal data protection as stipulated in the Constitution of the Kingdom of Thailand and currently promulgated the Personal Data Protection Act B.E. 2562 (2019).
