Who We Are
As technology becomes increasingly pervasive, it is imperative to raise the awareness and adoption of essential cybersecurity practices among internet users. Well-informed users would not only keep personal and organisational assets and information secure, but would also help to improve the overall security of cyberspace. To that end, the then Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) and like-minded partners from the public and private sectors formed the Cyber Security Awareness Alliance in 2008. With the formation of the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) in 2015 as the national body overseeing cybersecurity strategy, education and outreach and industry development, it also took over the role as Co-Chair of the Alliance from IDA.
The Alliance comprises representatives from the government, private enterprises, trade associations and non-profit organisations. As a collaborative body, the Alliance amalgamates efforts from its members by bringing together different strengths and resources. The aim of the Alliance is to:
Build a positive culture of cybersecurity in Singapore, where cybersecurity becomes second nature for all internet users;
- Promote and enhance awareness and adoption of essential cybersecurity practices for both the private and public sectors.
The Alliance’s tagline – “GO SAFE ONLINE” – serves as a call for action to emphasise that the best protection for internet users against cyber threats is personal commitment to cybersecurity.
Cybersecurity is incomplete without you! Be aware, responsible and secure!
