With more than 370 million internet users in South-East Asia and a 98% internet penetration rate in Singapore, companies have to protect themselves from millions of cyber-attacks every year. 

Underlying trend perspectives, notably in cybersecurity:

  • Preventing and fighting cyber-attacks and threats, even with more and more internet connections (in 2018, 1.5 million personal health data was hacked)
  • Protecting critical sectors such as energy, health, aeronautics, water, banking, land and maritime transport, government services
  • Building a strong cybersecurity legislation and collaborating efficiently with other countries
  • Ensuring data privacy and security for corporates and individuals, especially during the COVID-19 and work from home period

Great challenges to overcome:

  • Building a Resilient Infrastructure, consisting of strong legislation, safer governmental information systems, trained workforce against cyberattacks
  • Creating a Safer Cyberspace with a trustworthy ecosystem deriving from improved public education and collective corporate responsibility
  • Stimulate innovation by supporting fresh initiatives, new start-ups, R&D, university cyber programmes and more
  • Strengthening International Partnerships to create cooperation in legislation, to share information and grow public awareness through the organisation of Summits to become a benchmark in ASEAN cybersecurity
