Singapore insurer NTUC Income and Assurity, the first authentication operator under the National Authentication Framework, announced an agreement today to further embed security into the Singapore insurer's online customer service system.
The insurance company said that this latest technology initiative is an effort to further safeguard policyholder information that is exchanged in the course of customers' online transactions.
Today's announcement makes NTUC Income the first insurer in Singapore to adopt OneKey, Assurity's nationwide two-factor authentication device for users of online services across different sectors.
NTUC Income has invited all its customers to register for the service. Current OneKey users can link their device to NTUC Income through their me@income accounts for immediate use.
"As a financial institution where trust is paramount, NTUC Income is committed to continually boosting our secure-by-design IT infrastructure," said Siow Wee Loong, Chief Operations Officer, NTUC Income. "Through our adoption of OneKey, we are giving our policyholders the confidence that their personal and policies information is secure amidst a landscape of ever-changing cyber-security threats."
OneKey enables secure access to policyholder information and records, helping policyholders to keep track of their insurance portfolios, he said.
To register for OneKey, NTUC Income policyholders can go to www.income.com.sg/securedaccess.
