What is CSA Cyber Trust Mark exactly?
To help Singapore enterprises to raise their cybersecurity posture, the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) has launched the SG Cyber Safe Programme. It is part of the Safer Cyberspace Masterplan launched in October 2020, which its objective is to raise Singapore’s general cybersecurity level.
The cybersecurity certifications for enterprises, including Cyber Essentials and Cyber Trust marks, are a part of the program developed to recognize organizations adopting best cybersecurity practices. While the Cyber Essentials mark recognizes businesses 3with cyber hygiene measures in place, the Cyber Trust mark is a mark of distinction that identifies enterprises that implemented comprehensive cybersecurity measures and practices. The two cybersecurity certification marks were introduced in conjunction with partners in the sector, including certification practitioners, trade associations, and technology providers, and take into account the various organizational profiles and operational requirements of Singaporean organizations.
There are five tiers of Cybersecurity Preparedness, each with 10 to 22 domains. Businesses can determine which Cybersecurity Preparedness tier best suits their needs using the Cyber Trust mark risk assessment approach.
