Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation in the Field of Internet of Things Cyber Security

Published on 14 Dec 2023

The Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) and the Korea Internet and Security Agency (KISA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for Cooperation in the Field of Internet of Things (IoT) cyber security on 14 December 2023. 

The MOU was signed on Singapore’s behalf by the Deputy Chief Executive of CSA, Mr Chua Kuan Seah. Korea’s signatory was Mr Oh Jinyoung, Vice President of KISA.

Singapore and Korea share mutual interests in enhancing cooperation in the field of Internet of Things cyber security. Both countries recognise the cybersecurity risks that come with the increasing use of IoT devices by consumers, and the MOU establishes a strong relationship for cooperation in IoT cyber security. 

The MOU will promote the commitment of both countries to work towards a mutual recognition arrangement which will enable CSA and KISA to mutually recognise each country’s respective IoT cybersecurity certification and labelling schemes, namely CSA’s Cybersecurity Labelling Scheme and KISA’s Certification IoT of Cybersecurity. The MOU will also facilitate the exchange of information and technology between CSA and KISA, enabling both agencies to work together to identify and address emerging cybersecurity threats in the IoT landscape. This will strengthen the ability of both countries to address and tackle the IoT cybersecurity problem and enhance the safety and security of citizens.
