Building Data Management Capabilities in the Social Services Sector

21 Sep 2020

The Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) and the PDPC are collaborating with National Council of Social Service (NCSS) to build data management capabilities in the social services sector through Data Protection-as-a-Service (DPaaS).

DPaaS is an alternative for organisations to outsource their data protection functions. Organisations may approach any of the listed providers who are registered with IMDA.

NCSS will be providing a $1.5 million grant to social service agencies over the next two years for the engagement of data protection service providers. This helps organisations in the social service sector put in place baseline data protection safeguards and measures to support their longer term digitalisation roadmap.
