Hanoi (VNA) – Singapore has unveiled a new plan to guard against cyber-attacks that could threaten the country’s infrastructure such as power, water and transport networks.

It was launched on October 1 within the framework of the ongoing 4th Singapore International Cyber Week.

Senior Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security of Singapore Teo Chee Hean said the master plan is a good example to strengthen the national cyber security defence.

He stressed the importance of addressing threats of cyber-attacks so that the government can provide assurance to the public along with its Smart Nation initiatives.

The Singaporean official also announced the launch of a programme which will provide a channel for everyone to report vulnerabilities they discover on any Internet-facing government systems or applications.

With the programme, everyone has a shared responsibility to make the cyberspace safer and more resilient, he added.

The Singapore International Cyber Week runs until October 3 with the participation of governmental officials, policy-makers, business leaders, industry experts and academia from around the world./.
