Attain a mark of distinction
for your organisation’s robust cyber security posture
The ISO 27001:2013 information security standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving a documented ISMS to manage information security efficiently and effectively.
Cyber Safe Certification Scheme
The Cyber Safe Certification Scheme is an initiative launched by Cyber Security Agency (CSA), which recognises organisations that have adopted and implemented good cyber security practices.
Revolving around People, Processes and Technology, the scheme takes on the risk-based approach with the aim to help identify and guide organisations to put in place adequate cyber security measures to protect and defend systems and operations against cyber-attacks.
In consideration of the diverse organisational profiles and operational needs that businesses have in Singapore, the scheme comprises two cybersecurity marks:
- Cyber Essentials (catered for SMEs) and
- Cyber Trust (catered for larger organisations/ digitalised organisations that have higher cyber risk)
With proliferating supply chain cyber-attacks in the digital space, it is essential that organisations can ensure and demonstrate the robustness of their cyber security posture, which provides business assurances to their partners and customers. Thus, certifications like these can serve as proof to indicate the organisation’s commitment to ensuring the business remains cyber-secure.
a mark of distinction for organisations with good cyber hygiene practices
to secure their operations and systems from common cyber-attacks.
It is catered for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) – which often have limited IT and/or cybersecurity expertise and resources.
The Cyber Essentials Mark takes on a baseline control approach for protection against common cyber attacks that focuses on five aspects of Cyber Hygiene which include:
- Assets, Secure/Protect, Update, Backup, Respond.
The certification is valid for two years. The assessment mode is a desktop assessment by an independent assessor.
a mark of distinction for organisations with comprehensive cybersecurity measures
and practices Commensurable with their risk Profile.
It is catered for larger or more digitalised organisations, where these organisations would need to go beyond cyber hygiene.
With extensive IT infrastructures, the organisation may have higher risk levels. Thus, investments in cyber security expertise and resources to manage and secure its IT infrastructure are paramount.
The Cyber Trust Mark takes on a risk-based approach, which aims to enable organisations to adopt and implement relevant cybersecurity practices that commensurate with their cybersecurity risk profile.
The certification is valid for three years, with annual surveillance required. The assessment is based on the organisation’s documentation and the implementation and effectiveness of their cyber security practices, by an independent assessor.
There are five Cybersecurity Preparedness tiers, with 10-22 domains under each tier.
- Non-prescriptive – Organisations would need to identify the Cybersecurity Preparedness tier based on its needs and risk profile.
(Depending on the organisation, some of the controls within the domains may not be applicable to the organisation)
