Frequently asked questions

What is Data Protection-as-a-Service (DPaaS)?


It is a suite of Data Protection Services that allows your organisation to engage in training or supporting of your own DPO, or to outsource Data Protection Services to help your organisation set up a Data Protection Management Programme or to gain Data Protection support and certifications.




What can Data Protection-as-a-Service (DPaaS) do for businesses?


DPaaS is a bundle of services that helps businesses achieve compliance with the Personal Data Privacy Act (PDPA) through a systematic and operational approach. With Data Protection as-a-Service (DPaaS), businesses can enhance their data protection practices and support with security and flexibility of recovery options through a variety of features that are available.




Why is DPaaS important?


In Singapore, all registered businesses, companies and business agencies and associations (“Organisations”) are required to appoint a DPO and comply with the PDPA. Organisations that have limited capabilities or capacities to comply with the PDPA may engage DPaaS services to help you get a quick start in your compliance programme. Getting suitable DPaaS services may also help you with affordable services to help sustain your existing compliance programme or to get certified with the IMDA for your Data Protection practices.




What is Infocomm Media Development Authority’s (IMDA) DPaaS@SMEs?


The DPaaS@SMEs Programme (DPaaS@SMEs) makes it easier for SMEs to outsource data protection functions and helps SMEs in strengthening their data protection capabilities. DPaaS@SMEs provides basic data protection practices to SMEs to enhance consumer trust and to maximize business value. Key components of the DPaaS@SMEs Package include:

  • Data Protection Management
  • Data Breach Management
  • Training and Communications




Is DPaaS a growing trend?


In the EU, the Data Protection as-a-Service market was valued at USD 1.51 billion in 2019 and is forecast to reach USD 3.81 billion by 2025, growing 17.41% over the forecast period. With the GDPR and an increased focus on third-party risk management, data protection solutions are on the rise in Europe. Vendors from Europe are also expanding their product offerings by penetrating various industries to gain a competitive edge, contributing to the growth of this market. In ASEAN, data protection laws and regulations are slowly but steadily being enacted across the region. Enforcement efforts coupled with demands from consumers for the protection of their personal data points towards a similar trend. It is safe to say that we can expect more organisations beginning their data protection journey with a DPaaS package.




How can I get started on DPaaS?


Organisations can first engage a trusted DPaaS provider for a consultation. The type of service your organisation will need will vary depending on its industry and operational processes. With a DPaaS provider who knows what they are looking for, becoming compliant will be a smoother and more efficient process.
