Singapore updates cybersecurity laws

Singapore has passed a bill to expand the Cyber Security Agency’s (CSA) oversight of critical and high-risk computer systems, including temporary setups like those used for vaccine distribution or major events. This move, highlighted by Senior Minister of State for Communications and Information, Janil Puthucheary, is in response to the evolving challenges and increased digitisation that obscure such threats. The amendment to the Cybersecurity Act, the first since 2018, includes mandates for critical information infrastructure (CII) operators to report cybersecurity incidents and expands CSA’s audit scope to include entities like universities. The Act also introduces new categories for regulated entities and systems of temporary concern, ensuring robust protection against cyber attacks.
