Despite being the best in Singapore, we’re the most affordable

Having a DPO and being PDPA compliant is MANDATORY in Singapore, and we don’t believe businesses should be paying a premium just to remain compliant and avoid fines.

Thus, even as we pride ourselves on being the best and most secure DPO in Singapore, but are also 100% committed to being the most affordable. 

If you find a price with another DPO service provider that’s cheaper than you can get from us, with the same or more comprehensive scope of work, we’ll perform a price match.

3 cases of clients who came to us for help to report data breaches to PDPC

Case Study 1: Specialised Recruitment Agency

What happened:

  • Focuses on permanent, temporary, and contract positions in the Oil & Gas, Construction, Pharmaceutical, and Service industries.
  • Resume/CV submission Platform contains over 50,000 job applicants’ personal data amassed through the years.
  • Did not perform pentest.
  • Web platforms got hacked, and databases were exfiltrated and sold on the dark web.
  • CyberSecurity Agency (CSA) found the leaked database being sold, and contacted the company.
  • Company did not have an official DPO, quickly found Privacy Ninja via word-of-mouth referral and appointed us as the DPO.
  • Privacy Ninja conducted Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Test on the web platform and advised the client to take it offline, ensuring timely reporting of the confirmed breach within the stipulated breach reporting timeline.
  • Privacy Ninja drafted the communications with PDPC for close to a year, providing justifications on remediation activities, including onsite audits, data collection policies drafting and implementation, and advising on general data protection regulation and security measures to be in place for rebuilding the new web platform.
  • PDPC has accepted the company’s expedited breach decision procedure.

Case Study 2: Building & Construction Company

What happened:

  • Redacted is a Singapore-based company that experienced a data breach involving the compromise of one email account (info@Redacted.com.sg)(Company name undisclosed).
  • The account is shared by two admin staff.
  • Privacy Ninja assisted Redacted in performing forensic analysis to determine if it was an unauthorised access to the email or “email spoofing”, which is the act of sending a forged email using any domain.
  • Redacted has implemented additional security measures, including changing passwords and implementing two-factor authentication to ensure the privacy and security of data subjects.
  • Redacted has reported the incident to the police.
  • Redacted provided the contact information for individuals responsible for ensuring compliance with the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA).
  • Privacy Ninja worked with Redacted to provide copies of its internal guidelines for protecting personal data in accordance with section 12 of the PDPA.
  • Redacted is not sure how many individuals were affected by the data breach, but it has notified all customers and relevant parties of the incident.
  • Privacy Ninja as the outsourced DPO for Redacted, cooperated with the Personal Data Protection Commission (PDPC) in its investigation of the incident.
  • After further investigation, it was determined that the incident was an email spoofing attack rather than unauthorised access to the email account. 
  • Redacted implemented a number of regular and systematic monitoring steps to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future, including changing the password and setting up two-factor authentication, reformatting and reinstalling antivirus software, and implementing email authentication policies.
  • This demonstrates that Redacted took numerous data protection measures to address the issue, improve its data protection practices, and comply with data protection laws.
  • Redacted appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO), which is a requirement under the Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (PDPA). 
  • The PDPC issued an advisory notice to Redacted rather than a financial penalty.

Case Study 3: Cardiologist Specialist Clinic

What happened:

  • Suffered a ransomware attack.
  • Privacy Ninja conducted the compromise assessment.
  • The assessment focused on a single network and targeted 13 hosts.
  • The assessment was prompted by a ransomware attack on Redacted’s NAS (Network Attached Storage) server, which was discovered in February 22nd.
  • The ransomware attack was identified as the “Deadbolt” strain, which encrypted files and replaced the login screen with a ransom note.
  • The attack exploited a zero-day vulnerability in the Asustor EZ Connect feature to access the NAS server.
  • During the assessment, Privacy Ninja found no active compromise within Redacted’s IT systems.
  • However, the assessment identified some areas of concern, including the lack of network segmentation and weak or default credentials on some hosts.
  • Privacy Ninja transferred three malicious files from the NAS server to a sandbox environment for further analysis. These files were identified as /usr/builtin/etc/cgi_install, /usr/webman/portal/index.cgi, and /volume0/usr/builtin/18251.
  • The 18251 file was found to be a binary executable written in Golang and packed with UPX. It was used to perform both encryption and decryption tasks.
  • The /usr/webman/portal/index.cgi file was a CGI script that was used to verify user keys and decrypt affected files. However, it was found that the “key” input parameter was not properly validated, which could have led to a remote code execution vulnerability.
  • Privacy Ninja restored the sandbox environment to its original state after analysing the malicious files.
  • Privacy Ninja recovered the affected files and services to their original state and considered the outcome of the campaign to be successful.
  • After reviewing the Compromise Assessment conducted by Privacy Ninja, PDPC decided not to take further action against Redacted.
