As a next-generation collaboration product, Lark is continuously looking for ways to build a culture of effective and secure communication for its customers. Building on the existing ISO certifications, Lark has officially been awarded Data Protection Trustmark (DPTM) by Singapore's Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation's (APEC) Cross-Border Privacy Rules (CBPR) and Privacy Recognition Processors (PRP) system certifications.

Singapore's Data Protection Trustmark

In a truly digital economy, data is integral to business, and trust is the fundamental building block toward success. As Lark takes strides in cementing itself as the next-generation collaboration platform in the Asia Pacific, safeguarding the privacy and data of users across the region remains a top priority.

The DPTM is an enterprise-wide certification that recognises organisations that demonstrate accountability in their data protection practices and is conceived based on the Singapore Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) as well as international benchmarks and best practices.

The certification is a testament to our continual commitment to integrating robust data protection policies and practices within our platform to safeguard customers' personal data across a wide array of partners and businesses, including start-ups, e-commerce, and education.

Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation's (APEC) Privacy Certifications

Developed based on the APEC Privacy Framework and principles, the Cross Border Privacy Rules System (CBPR) & Privacy Recognition for Processors System (PRP) certifications are government-backed data privacy certifications that companies can apply for, to demonstrate compliance with internationally-recognised data privacy protection.

These certifications also affirm Lark's long-term commitment to safeguarding personal data and demonstrate our ability in complying with relevant privacy obligations. The certifications also enable us to support customers in the exchange of personal data more seamlessly across APEC economies while respecting privacy and security, ultimately strengthening user, business, and regulator trust across the region.

Globally, remote and distributed teams are on the rise. With our latest certifications, Lark hopes to be able to meet the security and compliance needs of every business - in every region.
