IMDA inks MOU with US Federal Communications Commission to fight scams

The deal will boost cross-border efforts to combat unlawful communications.

Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) and the United States Federal Communications Commission signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to strengthen cross-border efforts in protection against scams.

“The MOU seeks to enhance cooperation in regulatory enforcement activities related to scams; and mutual information exchanges in areas such as regulatory frameworks and technical and policy solutions related to unsolicited and unlawful communications in Singapore and the United States,” read the statement.

The MOU underscores the IMDA and FCC’s sharing of strategies against scams, which will minimise the risk against businesses and citizens from fake activities. 

Mr Lew Chuen Hong, Chief Executive of IMDA, said, “International cooperation is key in preserving trust for the digital commons, especially when addressing issues such as online scams which transcend borders. The agreement builds on the strong ties between Singapore and the United States in working towards safeguarding our digital environment.”
