The Rhetoric

“Call Singapore a Connected Island … the city state is aiming to become Asia’s “working laboratory” which will incubate, research and develop new infocomm ideas and technologies as part of its ambition to be a connected isalnd.”
– Straits Times, Mar 29, 2002

The Reality

“The role of ISD in the 1990s invariably includes the challenges of the IT revolution. ISD is one of the key national agencies at the forefront of IT security. ISD is a major participant in the Government’s continuing process of establishing the national framework and policies to address the challenges of the new cyberspace domain.”
