As a Digital Nation, residents in Singapore have increasingly embraced a digital-first lifestyle as the new norm. Since the onset of the pandemic, more time is spent on virtual meet-ups and video conferencing for work, immersing in social media, and streaming online content.
This shift to a new world of digital-first communities, hyper-connectedness, and increasingly prevalent Internet-enabled device usage has also had the unfortunate side-effect of opening up homes to sophisticated cyberthreats that now specifically target individuals and households— from phishing and malware, to malicious websites and spyware.
It’s clear. as you spend more time scrolling through that social media feed or browsing your favorite e-commerce site, there’s a strong possibility that someone out there is scrolling through you and your social network’s personal data.
