The fifth edition of CSA’s national cybersecurity campaign, “The Unseen Enemy” highlights the unseen, yet pervasive nature of cyber threats and scams in our daily lives, and the need for everyone to be vigilant against these threats.
A short video, which will be shown on various digital platforms, was produced to highlight the losses that unseen cybercriminals can inflict on us emotionally and financially. The video features a PME male unsuspectingly clicking on a malicious phishing link, which sets off a series of events where his valuables and data start to disappear. We see a faint silhouette of the unseen cybercriminal, in the victim’s home, before we catch a glimpse of him again at the end of the video, watching the victim whose camera he has also hacked into.
Four posters, each carrying one cyber tip, will be displayed across a variety of out-of-home platforms islandwide. They include wallscapes at train stations and bus interchanges, MRT platform screen doors, bus shelters, and digital display panels at HDB lift lobbies. There will also be partnerships with digital platforms and popular websites such as Lazada, Mothership and The Woke Salaryman.

Details of the “Home In on Cyber Security” Roadshow
Using a home setting, the “Home in on Cybersecurity” roadshow will take place on 30th September and 1st October, 11am – 6pm at the Suntec City Convention Centre Atrium Level 1. Visitors will receive an event card, which they can use to collect stamps at the interactive zones and redeem prizes.
The Strong Passphrase zone highlights the importance of creating strong passwords and guides visitors through the process of creating one.
