Singapore releases overarching Cybersecurity Bill for public consultation

Critical information infrastructure (CII) owners in Singapore must report security breaches, and cyber-security vendors providing highly sensitive services here will need to be licensed if a proposed Cybersecurity Bill gets the greenlight.

The draft Bill was released on Monday (July 10) for public consultation.

It follows last October’s announcement of a high-level cyber-security strategy that includes strengthening global partnerships and directing more funds to plug security gaps in CII, such as those that run telecommunications, transport, healthcare, banking and energy services.
