The Government computer security organisation Cyber Security Agency (CSA) has stepped-in to alley netizens concerns that the Government announcement that the work computers of public officers will have no access to the Internet to guard against cyber-attacks does not mean that E-services and Government engagement will cease.
The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) said in a circular to public servants on Tuesday (7 June) that they will have no Internet access to their work computers by June 2017. It said that public servants can still surf the Internet on separate computers or mobile devices – either belonging to the individual or provided by their organisations.
CSA said that claims that the Government is cutting off the Internet for civil servants is a “myth”.
