Singapore’s Parliament Passes New Measures to Protect Critical Infrastructure

Singapore strengthened its approach to cybersecurity last month when Parliament passed a Bill aimed at strengthening the protection of critical information infrastructure (CII) against cyber-attacks.

The Bill establishes a comprehensive framework for the prevention and management of cyber threats and incidents, including the regulation of CII owners to report cybersecurity incidents, conduct audits and risk assessments, participate in cybersecurity exercises and comply with performance standards and codes of conduct.

David Koh, Chief Executive, Cyber Security Agency of Singapore, Deputy Secretary (Special Projects) and Defence Cyber Chief, MINDEF and Commissioner of Cybersecurity-designate for Singapore, will deliver a keynote at the 3rd Annual Billington International Cybersecurity Summit in his first appearance in the U.S. since the passage of the Bill by Parliament.

He will receive the award at the 3rd Annual Billington International Cybersecurity Summit.
