Security services provider, Certis Technology Singapore (CTS), a subsidiary of Certis, has been awarded the Data Protection Trustmark (DPTM) certification from the Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore (IMDA).
The DPTM is awarded to organisations with robust and responsible data protection practices that have been independently assessed by IMDA-appointed assessment bodies to comply with the certification requirements.
CTS, the technological nerve centre of Certis, join more than 120 companies in Singapore which have been awarded the certification.
Certis has designed, built and operated intelligent security technology such as alarm monitoring systems and facial recognition capabilities as part of their security solutions.
CTS’ Senior Vice President, Leonard Oh, said Certis has implemented a “robust data protection framework which includes the responsible collection, protection and use of personal data”.
The integrated risk approach of this framework provides a common language that is standardised at all levels of the organisation, Oh said.
This, he added, enabled Certis to “coordinate, plan and invest strategically” to meet current and future cybersecurity needs of its ops-tech solutions.
Oh added that Certis leverages and integrates industry-leading frameworks, such as the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework and ISO/IEC 27000 series of standards, “so as to manage data and cybersecurity-related risks as part of its overall business risk management”.
“We are delighted to receive this DPTM certification as an affirmation of our commitment towards data privacy and protection. With rapid digital transformation, we recognise the growing importance of data security and protection in all our technology-led operations,” Oh said.
