Singapore bolsters SingPass defenses after security breaches

SINGAPORE -- The Singaporean government has renewed the management system for its SingPass accounts, which are used for accessing online administrative services, in an effort to enhance security in the face of an increase in the number of serious breaches.

     A new two-step authentication system has been introduced to bolster the 12-year-old system's defense against cybercrimes, such as theft of personal information and phishing scams. The move is a response to the proliferation of such crimes, which pose a growing security threat.
