Government agencies in Singapore will appoint Chief Information Security Officers to counter the increasing threat of cyber attack, Communications Minister Yaacob Ibrahim has announced.
Speaking at an event organised by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), he said: “The Government will appoint Chief Information Security Officers to strengthen the infocomm security governance in government agencies.”

He added that: “The IDA will also be setting up a Monitoring and Operations Control Centre to provide the Government with a full suite of capabilities to guard against security threats and respond to them in a timely manner.”

The move comes after it emerged in June that over 1,500 SingPass accounts were vulnerable to cyber attack.

E-government services will now require two factor authentication, whereas some systems had only a single authentication required before access was granted.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...
