Earlier this week, a breach in an Internet access system at MINDEF resulted in the personal data of 850 national servicemen and employees being stolen. The growing risk of such threats in recent times has seen the SAF doubling the number of cyberdefence personnel and investing in emerging technologies through the Cyber Security Operations Centre 2.0 initiative in April last year. A Cyber Defence Operations Hub was also built in 2013.
“The next-generation SAF needs to prepare for this environment where state-orchestrated cyber and information campaigns against another state are not only considered legitimate, but can be ongoing all the time,” said Dr Ng. “The impact of that threat can have real and damaging physical consequences.”
