Accreditation@SGD

About

As a key contributor to the Digital Economy strategy, the Accreditation@SGD programme has a vital role in growing and nurturing the local ICM technology ecosystem. The programme was launched in July 2014 to:

 

Accredit promising and innovative Singapore-based high-growth ICM product companies to establish credentials and position them as qualified contenders to government and large enterprise buyers.

 

Provide potential end users with the assurance of the accredited companies’ product core functionalities and ability to deliver.

 

Build an innovative technopreneur ecosystem to drive economic growth, inspire the younger generation, and build more innovative products and tech product companies that can scale overseas.

 

To improve the quality of cybersecurity products of SMEs in Singapore through the adoption of Common Criteria (CC) certification,  IMDA launched a new SecureTech track with CSA under the Accreditation@SG Digital programme from March 2019. This is part of the efforts to grow the Cybersecurity ecosystem in Singapore and enable SG:D Accredited SecureTech companies to expand internationally through tapping on the track record built in Singapore. Through the SecureTech Track, IMDA and CSA will also encourage and ease the adoption and procurement of SG:D Accredited SecureTech products by government agencies and enterprises. Under this new track, companies are required to obtain CC certification for the product to be accredited.

Companies interested in SecureTech track can find out more on the details of the process in our Guidelines (590.10KB).
