CSA launches programmes to address 154% increase in business cyberattacks

Businesses and organisations in Singapore will get a helping hand to strengthen their cybersecurity.

Minister of State for Communications and Information Tan Kiat How announced the two initiatives that will help businesses and organisations combat cyberattacks.

The Cybersecurity Toolkits for Enterprises and the new SG Cyber Safe Partnership Programme was launched during the SG Cyber Safe Partnership Programme launch held as part of the Singapore International Cyber Week 2021 at the Marina Bay Sands.

"Cybersecurity is a collective responsibility that requires the government and the industry to work closely together. The government alone cannot reach out to all businesses to encourage them to strengthen their cyber resilience. Private-public collaboration is, therefore, key to ensuring that businesses stay cyber-secure. We welcome other industry partners who are keen to work with CSA to drive cybersecurity awareness, shift attitudes and 
encourage adoption amongst enterprises in their digitalisation journeys," Tan said.

Cyber Security Agency of Singapore's report titled Singapore Cyber Landscape released in June 2021 showed a 154% increase in ransomware cases year on year. These cases affected many small and medium enterprises (SMEs). SMEs and larger enterprises could also be susceptible to the downstream ramifications of supply chain attacks, as highlighted by the SolarWinds and Kaseya supply chain cyber incidents in the past two years.
