Grab obtains Data Protection Trustmark certification from IMDA
It's the first super app to be awarded the certificate.
Grab has obtained a Data Protection Trustmark (DPTM) certification from Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), making it the first super app to be awarded one.
A DPTM certificate is awarded to organisations that have stringent data protection policies and processes.
"Achieving the DPTM certification is a way in which we hold ourselves accountable to our users who trust us in handling their data, and also validates our efforts in ensuring data protection and compliance," Yee Wee Tang, country head of Grab Singapore, said.
"We hope that this level of rigorous assessment also builds trust among our consumers so that they can have peace of mind when they choose to use our platform," the official added.
Over the years, Grab has invested in data protection by employing over 300 skilled professionals to manage cybersecurity and personal data protection programmes; and partnering with independent consultants to conduct privacy assessments, among others.
