A committee consisting of industry experts and government officials was set up by the industry regulator to develop a multi-year roadmap with a purpose of developing tools and capabilities and detecting cyber threats. A committee has been formed by the Singapore government which releases guidelines that it says aims to increase the cybersecurity protection and abilities in the telecommunications industry.
The IMDA said, “Connectivity infrastructure is a key building block for Singapore’s economy. The changing needs of the digital economy will require trusted, secure, and resilient next-generation connectivity infrastructure, including 5G and narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) sensor networks.
A panel of industry experts and a team of government officials are leading this initiative. IMDA also unveiled an implementation guide which aims to make it more convenient for the consumers to register for online mobile services in a secure manner by letting operators to very mobile services digitally without actually making any face-to-face transactions.
