The importance of cybersecurity in building a digital nation

Countries are moving beyond digital transformation and towards the realisation of a digital nation, allowing citizens, governments, and services such as transportation, finance, healthcare, and businesses to live in a digital society that interacts and generates value, benefiting all stakeholders. However, the road to becoming a Smart Nation, harnessing technology to transform how people and businesses live, work, and play, is not without challenges.

When systems and those handling them are vulnerable, a multitude of risks exist. Ransomware disrupts vital sectors, DDoS attacks grow in frequency and severity, and cybercriminals can gain control over sensitive data. On this road to a digital tomorrow, technologies and solutions must be secure to ensure zero compromises to citizen services, finance, health, and citizens’ data, all of which are part of a nation’s critical infrastructure.

  • What are the most significant threats to building a digital nation? How are organisations mitigating these threats?
  • What technologies and innovations should organisations look to today to ensure a secure future?
  • What does the future of Singapore look like? What digital and technological trends are shaping tomorrow?
