In a recent joint statement, Singapore’s Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI) and Cyber Security Agency (CSA) said that the proposed Cybersecurity bill will be refined further to incorporate the public’s feedback into the upcoming licensing framework.

The MCI and CSA received a total of 92 submissions from 9 major institutions in the tech industry including telco’s M1, StarHub, and Singtel, consulting firms PricewaterhouseCoopers Risk Services and KPMG, and tech vendors Amazon Web Services, FireEye, Microsoft, and Palo Alto Networks.    

Included in the feedback were requests for clearer definition of systems to be considered part of critical information infrastructures (CIIs), and the streamlining and alignment of CII owner duties with existing codes and standards.
