Given Singapore's pervasive use of Infocomm technology, the Singapore Government recognised the need to enhance the security of its Infocomm environment. In order to address and manage the cyber-threats in a more holistic and concerted manner, the Infocomm Security Masterplan was developed. In February 2005, the Masterplan was announced by the government as a 3-year strategic roadmap starting from April 2005 to March 2007, with a commitment to invest S$38 million on various cyber-security initiatives.

During the presentation, an overview of the Masterplan will be given, and this includes the objectives, framework and key strategies identified by the Singapore Government. This will be followed by a brief discussion on the various on-going projects resulting from the Masterplan.
