Tracking Footsteps

The advent of Advanced digital tech has brought mankind extreme levels of comfort and convenience in everyday life.

Inter-connected ‘smart' systems, communication channels and enhanced connectivity have enabled us to be more productive and efficient.


The exchange for such productivity comes with a price - with the constant flow of personal data from all channels.

The rise in privacy breaches in personal data and the increased risks of data theft through hacking and impersonation, users of the internet continue to be vulnerable to such threats. 

Even with governmental and industry regulation, virtual security measures like encryption, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and firewalls, the Singapore stands firm in embracing tech through the MCI’s Digital Readiness Blueprint.
