Workshop Information


The ASEAN-Japan Government Networks Security Workshop


Background

Information security of a government is essential not only for the government itself but also for all the business entities and citizens that make access to the government via networks. At the same time, the information system of a government could be one of the most targeted objects of the malicious activities in the cyber world. The continuous monitoring of the government networks and preparedness to the possible attacks have become ever important than ever. To answer this need, some of the ASEAN member countries as well as Japan have developed capability for monitoring, set up rules and structured organization for response. Typically, they are embodied in the implementation of a government Security Operation Center (SOC).

ASEAN member countries and Japan gathered to share information about the requirements for security operations of a government network etc.

  • The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA)

    The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) has the strategic goal to cultivate a vibrant and competitive infocomm industry in Singapore in order to enhance the global economic competitiveness of Singapore. Against the backdrop of pervasive infocomm technology use by the Singapore Government, businesses and society, Singapore's strategy to secure the infocomm environment is encapsulated in the two Infocomm Security Masterplans which were developed through multi-agency efforts led by IDA.

    The first Infocomm Security Masterplan (ISMP) focused on developing infocomm security capabilities to enhance Singapore's national level efforts to protect the country against external and internal cyber threats. Some of the key initiatives undertaken in ISMP include the Cyber Watch Centre, Threat Analysis Centre, Business Continuity Readiness Assessment Framework and the Infocomm Security Health Scorecard.

    Infocomm Security Masterplan 2 (MP2), which was launched in 2008, will see the public, private and people sectors working even more closely together to secure Singapore's cyber space. Details to IDA's strategy and programmes in infocomm security can be found here.


    Singapore was among the first nations in South East Asia region to establish the Singapore Computer Emergency Response Team (SingCERT) in 1997. As part of IDA's effort in creating a conducive, innovative, and competitive infocomm environment that is both pro-consumer and pro-business, SingCERT is a one-stop centre for security incident response in Singapore. It was set up to facilitate the detection, resolution and prevention of security related incidents on the Internet. SingCERT provides assistance to companies and the public in the management of computer incidents such as hacking and virus attacks. Regular virus alerts and information are available on its website. Members of the public can also subscribe to SingCERT's mailing list to receive regular updates on viruses and seminars.
