Singapore Signs Cybersecurity Agreements With US, Canada


Singapore last week signed cybersecurity-related agreements with both Canada and the United States as officials from both countries visited Singapore for the 33rd ASEAN Summit.

Singapore and the United States signed a declaration of intent (DoI) for collaboration on a Cybersecurity Technical Assistance Programme for ASEAN member states whose goal is “further strengthening partnerships in regional cybersecurity capacity building” through workshops.

The DoI, which builds on a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between the two countries in August 2016, was signed by Singapore’s Cyber Security Agency and the U.S. Department of State.

The Cybersecurity Technical Assistance Programme will deliver three training workshops focusing on various aspects of enhancing technical capabilities. The workshops will take place in Singapore and other ASEAN countries, with participation from key industry partners.
