Singapore upgrade cyber security ops

Singapore's Cyber-Watch Centre is being upgraded to strengthen the government's detection and analytical capabilities. 

The centre was set up in 2007 to provide round the clock monitoring of critical public-sector IT installations. 

Minister for Communications and Information, Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, said that by January next year, the centre would be able to better monitor government websites for malicious activities, which could affect access to online public services. 

Speaking at an industry seminar, Dr Yaacob said the Government will appoint Chief Information Security Officers to strengthen the infocomm security governance in government agencies. 

The Infocomm Development Authority 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.
