He said: Attackers always have the benefit of attacking the weakest link, whereas the defenders have to defend everything they have, which is an asymmetric scenario.A wave of cyberattacks have hit dozens of country around the world in the last few years. The question may sound silly to those who are of a certain age but it can cause head-scratching among today's younger set. Additional measures have also been added recently to better monitor the databases of critical government systems and detect breaches faster, the spokesperson added. In another incident, the medical records of 14, HIV-positive people were illegally disclosed online by deported American fraudster Mikhy Farrera Brochez, whose partner Ler Teck Siang used to work at the ministry. Typists are found at courthouses punching out affidavits, family deeds and other legal documents for as little as 25 rupees two Singapore cents.

Ler, who was able to access the HIV registry as part of his work, was believed to have downloaded the information into a thumb drive, and later failed to retain possession of it. He wanted to set up a typewriter repair service. Companies such as PayPal and Carousell currently adopt artificial intelligence and analytics to combat fraud at scale. Unfortunately, many private organisations will never discover that they have been compromised, and many will choose not to publicly disclose their breaches, said Mr Eric Hoh, Asia-Pacific president of cybersecurity company FireEye.
The Government also has the SMEs Go Digital programme offering advice and subsidies for pre-approved cybersecurity solutions. MOE also works with parents and relevant agencies to monitor and review its cyberwellness syllabus regularly as the cybersecurity landscape evolves, said Madam Choy Wai Yin, Director of Guidance Branch, Student Development Curriculum Division at the ministry.
The model had caught her attention when the couple visited the National Museum during a date. People will always feel it will never happen to them, or it will never happen to their company.

But his mum thought the venture was a huge risk and was against the idea. The Chinese tutor even gave a typewriter to her student as a birthday present after he was fascinated at her hand-typed encouragement card.
Agreeing, Mr Tin of the Singapore Computer Society stressed that organisations should make a conscious and sustained investment in education, training and drills, with those at management level given visible roles related to cybersecurity.This dropped to around 30 per cent when it came to containing major cybersecurity threats within an hour. According to a survey on cybersecurity perceptions and practices conducted by LogRhythm last year, less than half of the companies polled worldwide could detect a major security incident within an hour. Thus, companies which are already grappling with a manpower crunch, especially small and medium-sized enterprises SMEs , may put cybersecurity plans on the backburner. So he decided to ask his year-old uncle, Mr Jon Lim, a retiree who used to work for a typewriter service and repair company, how such machines work. At the workplace, regular training sessions are also standard practice at companies such as Rackspace, Qlik, Carousell, PayPal and Xero. Print Edition Subscribe Topics:.
