The consultation paper on Cyber-Dependent Crimes and Jurisdictional Issues was published by the Cybercrime Sub-committee of the Law Reform Commission on July 20, 2022.
We have a fruitful discussion at our forum on September 14, 2022 when we touched on the terms “to acquire certification” and “accrediting cybersecurity practitioners” in the consultation paper. As the paper referred to Cyber Security Agency (CSA) of Singapore, we believe it would be better for us to understand what is CSA of Singapore’s objectives and how they define the program before we define how our future direction to be.
Cloud Security Alliance Hong Kong & Macau Chapter has invited our CSA APAC ex-colleague Anthony Lim to share his view and provide highlights to us on the Cyber Security Agency (CSA) of Singapore accreditation program.
Participants will claim 1 CPE.
