IMDA launches GoSecure to boost cybersecurity capabilities of local ICT companies

IMDA launches GoSecure to boost cybersecurity capabilities of local ICT companies

IMDA
encourages the adoption of digital solutions by different sectors to drive
digital transformation. With increasing digital adoption comes the need for ICT
solution providers to strengthen the reliability of their digital solutions and
products.

As
announced on 21 May, Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) launched
GoSecure programme to increase the cybersecurity capabilities of Singapore’s
local ICT companies and improve their product security posture at a nominal fee
starting from S$6,500.

GoSecure
is designed for Singapore and Singapore-based digital solution companies to
benefit from Security-by-Design Consultation and Vulnerability Assessment
Testing. The programme is supported the Cyber Security Agency (CSA) of
Singapore. CSA will assist to establish the Security by Design curriculum and
review the quality of Vulnerability Assessment process during the initial
phase.

Security-by-Design Consultation

Through
a consultation process, ICT companies will acquire knowledge on how best to
approach and design their software from ground up in a way that will be as
secure as possible. ICT companies will also undergo exercises such as Threat
Risk Assessment and Critical Design Review to help them better appreciate any
potential weaknesses of their solutions.

Vulnerability Assessment Testing

Through
Vulnerability Assessment Testing of products or solutions, ICT companies will
be able to define, identify, classify and fix discovered security
vulnerabilities in their product.

Through the GoSecure programme, ICT companies will be able
to: (1) incorporate cybersecurity considerations during solution development,
(2) identify and resolve vulnerabilities in their solutions, and (3) gain
access to vulnerability assessment services that will help guide them in
addressing advanced security threats and vulnerabilities.

IMDA is partnering Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT)
to administer the programme. Under the partnership, IMDA will co-fund the
manpower, software, and hardware requirements to execute the programme.

To
allow SIT students and interns to benefit from the exposure to commercial
industry projects, SIT will launch a Corporate Mentorship Scheme for
experienced industry professionals to provide guidance to SIT students
conducting the Vulnerability Assessment Testing.

The programme is expected to benefit 200 ICT
companies over a 2-year period from July 2018 to June 2020.
