Singapore unveils 5-year cyber security masterplan

Check out these 3 objectives.

In a release, the Government announced the launch of a five-year National Cyber Security Masterplan 2018 to further secure Singapore’s cyber environment. 

Developed through a multi-agency effort led by IDA under the guidance of the National Infocomm Security Committee (NISC), the Masterplan provides an overarching strategic direction to help Government and organisations in strengthening resilience against cyber threats.

Announcing the launch at the Information Security Seminar 2013, Minister for Communications and Information Dr Yaacob Ibrahim said, “Adopting a collaborative approach across the public, private and people sectors, the Masterplan will enhance the security of Singapore’s critical infocomm infrastructure and address the security of businesses and individuals.

This will create a truly robust infocomm ecosystem and improve our quality of lives.”

The Masterplan will focus on three key areas to develop Singapore as a trusted and robust infocomm hub by 2018.

First, it will enhance security and resilience of critical infocomm infrastructure which includes conducting new cross-sector exercises to improve overall resilience of infrastructure and services.

Second, efforts will be increased to promote infocomm security adoption among end-users and businesses by leveraging publicity channels and collaborating with industry and trade associations. T

he last key area is to grow Singapore’s pool of infocomm security experts through working with Institutes of Higher Learning and industry partners in training and developing more students and professionals in infocomm security.

The Masterplan succeeds both Infocomm Security Masterplan and Infocomm Security Masterplan 2 that were implemented from 2005 to 2012.
