A review of the network security of 11 critical service sectors, following the SingHealth data breach, will be completed by the end of this year, Minister for Communications and Information S. Iswaran said yesterday.
He gave the update in a written parliamentary reply to Ms Cheng Li Hui (Tampines GRC), who had asked about the completion timeframe, whether government grants will be given to help companies in the sectors beef up their cyber defences, and how the Government plans to work with the companies to ensure they remain vigilant. These critical information infrastructure (CII) sectors comprise government, infocomm, energy, aviation, maritime, land transport, healthcare, banking and finance, water, security and emergency, and media.
