“We are delighted to partner PECB, a well-known leader and certification body for their ISO courses. The DPEX Network, spear headed by Straits Interactive, offers three learning roadmaps to data protection professionals within the ASEAN region - academic qualification route, a professional certification route and a Governance, Risk Management & Compliance (or GRC) route. With our PECB partnership, we are now able to complement our current roadmap with ISO certifications such as the ISO 27701 (data privacy/protection) for data protection professionals both in Singapore and in the ASEAN region.  We look forward to hosting our first batch of students soon.”
