Title: Towards A Smart Nation


In March this year, Singapore’s Ministry of Communication and Information (MCI) released a public consultation document on the Infocomm Media Masterplan (IMM), to guide the development of Singapore’ Infocomm and Media (ICM) sectors until 2025. The goal is to establish Singapore as a Smart Nation that leads the world in tapping the potential of ICM, and that nurtures Innovative Talent and Enterprises. Singapore is uniquely positioned to achieve this Smart Nation vision, given its distinctive characteristics of being “small enough yet big enough”; small enough to be nimble in tandem with the pace of technology evolution, big enough to enable the bringing together of policy and people of a nation to support its technology vision. In this session, Mun Yuen will share some of the preliminary ideas of the IMM, and a framing of the relevant infocomm technologies for a Smart Nation, including the possible technology R&D areas.

Title: Securing the Internet of Things and Machine-to-Machine Communications


Until around 2008, there were more humans in the world than devices connected to the Internet. That is no longer the case. In 2010, the global average of connected devices per person was 1.84. Taking only those people that use the Internet (around 2 billion in 2010), that figure becomes 6 devices per person.
Today, most of these devices are entities that the user will directly interact with—a laptop, smartphone, tablet, etc. But what is changing is that other devices used every day to orchestrate and manage the world we live in are becoming connected entities in their own right; from robots, sensor and actuators to automate manufacturing, to inter-connecting transport systems and cities to even “wearables” for improved healthcare.
With the explosion of devices connected to the Internet and a global reliance on them; the attack surface by which hackers and terrorists can exploit will also grown exponentially. More importantly, the attacker’s potential is now not only monetary and intellectual property gains but succeeding in Cyber terrorism to larger scales of loss of life.
This presentation will focus on the need for a security life cycle to address these security challenges that exist and how to begin to address the evolving threat landscape.
