The certifications validate CrimsonLogic’s commitment towards data governance and protection in Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC)
SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 14 April 2020
- CrimsonLogic, a global provider of eGovernment products and
services headquartered in Singapore, today announced that it has been awarded with
the Data Protection Trustmark (DPTM) and APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules (CBPR)
certifications by Singapore's Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA). CrimsonLogic is the first company in
Singapore to receive both certifications.
DPTM and APEC CBPR certifications are part of the Singapore government's
initiatives towards securing a burgeoning data-driven economy. Adapted from the Personal Data Protection Act
(PDPA) and incorporating international benchmarks and best practices, the DPTM is a voluntary certification which requires
organisations to demonstrate accountability in handling personal data. The APEC CBPR System, on the other hand, is
a data privacy certification developed by APEC economies to establish and
enhance consumer, business and regulator trust in cross border flows of
worked with an external assessment body to ensure that its data protection
practices conform to the requirements of both DPTM and APEC CBPR frameworks. A core certification work group was formed to
engage internal stakeholders across teams during the preparatory stage to
gather necessary evidence such as policy documents and training records, while
also coordinating onsite certification visits by external assessors.
Saw Ken Wye, CEO of CrimsonLogic said: "In order for businesses to thrive and
trade to grow, information must be exchange and data shared responsibly. The certifications are an acknowledgement of
our efforts to preserve the trust of our customers. We will continue to encourage the sharing of
data to promote better business efficiencies, while continuing to invest in
data security and inspire confidence amongst our customers and partners."
Chief Executive Mr Tan Kiat How said: "The seamless and trusted sharing of data
across borders is increasingly crucial for companies in the digital economy.
The CBPR certification is an important mechanism to facilitate such data flows
across the APEC economies. I
congratulate CrimsonLogic for being the first CBPR certified company in
Singapore and encourage more organisations to apply for the certification."
