Singapore Armed Forces To Beef Up Cyber Defence Capabilities

12 April 2016

The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) is set to receive a boost to its cyber defence capabilities, with the doubling of the number of personnel assigned to the Cyber Defence Operations Hub (CDOH) by 2020, Singapore's Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen announced during the defence ministry's budget speech in parliament on 7 April.

Details of the capabilities and size of the CDOH are presently unknown. The existence of the agency was revealed to the public by Ng during a media event just ahead of the SAF Day celebration on 1 July 2013, when reporters were briefed that it is responsible for providing round-the-clock protection for Singapore's military networks that support critical functions such as communications, engineering, logistics and surveillance, as well as weapon systems.
