Together We are Stronger: Australia and Singapore Partner Up on Cybersecurity

A freshly inked Memorandum of Understanding between Australia an Singapore will see the two countries strengthen their cybersecurity through a joint effort to build a secure and resilient cyber space.

The two-year partnership which was signed last week, will see Singapore’s Cyber Security Agency work with the Australian government to conduct regular information exchanges on cyber threats, share best practices to promote innovation in cyber security, and build cyber security capabilities.

Both countries are aligned in their views of international collaboration to strengthen domestic cybersecurity. Singapore in particular has been leading the charge to build stronger partnerships between countries in the ASEAN region.

According to the UNs’ 2015 Global Cybersecurity Index, a measure of a country’s cyber security readiness, Australia was ranked third, while Singapore came in sixth.
