Port-IT receives Singapore Cybersecurity Service Provider (CSP) licence


From October 2022 onwards, companies providing cybersecurity services in Singapore are required to obtain a Cybersecurity Service Provider (CSP) licence. This licence is part of the Singapore Cybersecurity Act 2018 and the Cybersecurity Regulations 2022 and when issued, demonstrate a comprehensive implementation of cybersecurity standards.

Recently, Port-IT received this official Singapore CSP certification for its products and services.

The purpose of this framework is twofold; it aims to better safeguard customer interests as well as improve service provider standards. The framework is a continuation of the Singapore Government’s focus on cyber resilience and hardening of IT infrastructure, particularly in light of the recent rise in cyberattacks.

As Port-IT is a managed cybersecurity provider offering the services as mentioned in the licensing framework, we are proud to have acquired the required licensing to deliver and implement all products and services.

The two licences recently obtained by Port-IT are a Penetration Testing Service Licence and Managed Security Operations Centre Monitoring Service Licence.

With these licences Port-IT says it is able to assure customers that it is able to safeguard ships according to the highest standards, keeping vessels safely connected at sea.
