CSA chief executive David Koh says that even with areas for improvement, he is encouraged by the fact that Singaporeans know everyone has a role to play and wish to learn more.
The report found that the public want to see more information around: steps to protecting data from unauthorised threats/access; more communication to provide information and warnings; basic education for youth and elderly.
While we know that more needs to be done in the cybersecurity space, there are still some gaping holes in how we approach it. Those are the figures coming from the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) about how Singaporeans play a role in security. CSA conducted an online study of 2000 respondents over a three-month period, and found that 70% of respondents believe every individual has a role to play in cybersecurity – but there is much room for improvement. 86% of respondents said they use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols in their passwords, but 33% write their passwords down or store them on their computer, and 31% use the same passwords for work and personal accounts.
