The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aims to strengthen collaboration through more regular bilateral exchanges, sharing of best practices and efforts to develop cyber security expertise.

The Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) signed yesterday its first international Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with its French counterpart, Agence Nationale de la Sécurité des Systèmes d'Information (ANSSI).

In a media statement, CSA said that the MoU will strengthen collaboration between the two countries through "more regular bilateral exchanges, sharing of best practices and efforts to develop cyber security expertise".

The MoU was signed at the Élysée Palace in Paris, France by CSA's chief executive David Koh and ANSSI director-general Guillaume Poupard. It was also witnessed by French President Francois Hollande and President Tony Tan Keng Yam, who is in France to mark the 50th anniversary of Singapore-France diplomatic relations.

"This agreement demonstrates the commitment of our organisations to cooperate to face common threats to cyber security," said Koh. "Cyber security is a critical issue in an increasingly borderless world and we look forward to working alongside France to better prevent and respond to evolving cyber threats."
