We Equip You For The Digital Future

Data Protection Trustmark Readiness

The Data Protection Trustmark Certification is part of advancing Singapore’s digital economy as a trusted hub. To this end, the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) has launched the DPTM certification to help organisations demonstrate accountable and responsible data protection practices. This is where Privacy Ninja comes in - we equip you with knowledge to be DPTM certified.

It's not just about being compliant. Obtaining DPTM (Data Protection Trustmarks Certification) will strengthen your reputation, build trust among your network, and foster confidence for your business.

We believe that in the near future, DPTM Certified Companies will be the norm to provide services with the Singapore Government (e.g. tendering in Gebiz).

Is it difficult to be DPTM (Data Protection Trustmarks) certified?

In our experience, companies that have existing data protection culture at the workplace typically undergo a seamless transformation to be a DPTM (Data Protection Trustmarks) certified company. If you know that your organisation is lacking in many areas, the process will not be harder, just longer. This exercise will in fact enable your organisation to become PDPA compliant when you attain the DPTM (Data Protection Trustmarks) certification.

How long does it take to be Data Protection Trustmarks certified?

The total duration depends on a few factors. If a company is applying for funding support under EDG, the consultancy project cannot commence until a Letter of Offer is presented by ESG, where the waiting time typically takes 4 to 8 weeks. The project duration itself varies across every company, depending on what is already implemented and remediating what is lacking. Companies should expect about six months thereabout to become a DPTM Certified Company.

Serin Tan Managing Director of Quals

Privacy Ninja provides affordable and high quality Data Protection services. I highly recommend any business seeking to improve your PDPA compliance or don't know where to start to speak to them as soon as possible.

Roger Siow Managed Services Provider

Privacy Ninja is knowledgeable and professional in what they do. Engaged them to conduct PDPA training for my staff and everyone greatly benefitted, I am safe to say we are much more aware and aligned to the PDPA's obligations.

Alvin Decruz Data Protection Officer

I attended Privacy Ninja’s PDPA training and was extremely impressed. Andy is a great trainer and was able to impart a lot of knowledge in just a short 4 hour course. I went from someone who had no regards for PDPA to someone who now sees the importance of data protection and knows what to do to be compliant. I strongly recommend all business owners to take PDPA seriously and talk to the Privacy Ninja team and see how they can keep you, your employees and your customers safe.
