Ideal For

  • Organisations that need to strengthen their data protection practices to foster customers’ trust and confidence to use data to maximise business value

  • Organisations setting up their Data Protection Management Programme

  • Train DPO who need to operationalise data protection requirements of PDPA

  • Newly appointed Data Protection Officers or Data Protection Executives unsure of their role

  • Personnel handling personal data such as HR, Sales & Marketing, Compliance, Finance, Internal Auditors, IT


With the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) now in effect in Singapore, organisations that manage personal data have to ensure full compliance with the law, or face financial consequences.This calls for a new position in organisations that manage personal data – that of the Data Protection Officer.


This 3-day Hands-on Data Protection Officer Training Programme equips professionals, managers and executives (PMEs) in Singapore with new competencies using a practical approach and borrowing from best practices, showing them how to implement, comply and stay compliant with the PDPA.


In addition, Straits Interactive provides Data Protection as a Service (DPaaS) offerings to guide organisations with the following:

  • Offers a hands-on approach conducted by practitioners who are doing PDPA Audits in organisations.

  • An integrated Data Protection Management System software (DPOinBox) subscription between 3 to 12 months.

  • Includes 1 hour of legal guidance from data protection lawyer.

  • Includes advisory support from Certified Data Protection professionals.

  • Includes customisable policy templates and privacy/personal data protection notices.

Trainees will be tasked to complete a project based on their own organisational context as part of the programme’s assessment. This will be useful for the attending DPOs to assess their organisations’ current levels of compliance with the PDPA and take the necessary actions to address the relevant gaps and risks. By the time they complete the course, the DPOs would have started their compliance efforts for their respective companies and would have sufficient hands-on experience to continue and complete the project they had started.


The programme lays the practical foundation and competencies necessary for a career in the new era of compliance in personal data protection. Local workers will gain a valuable and niche skill set to increase their mobility and value-add to their companies.


We don’t just train you – we show you how to be compliant, complete with your own Compliance Manual, Audit & all the Tools you need!


…. all done by the time you complete the course!

…. with roadmap to International Certification

How are our deliverables aligned with IMDA's DPaaS @ SMEs Programme?
