With technological disruption, today’s world is confronted with three security challenges: polarisation, radicalisation and cyber threats.
And Singapore, being a small and open economy, and a country that is multi-racial and multi-religious, is seeking to deal with these challenges based on three key principles, said Foreign Affairs Minister Vivian Balakrishnan on Monday (April 8).
The first is to address the social disruption brought about by technological advancements; second, to promote interfaith dialogue and enact laws to fight fake news; and third, to take a multi-faceted approach to tackle cyber threats.
The annual conference, whose theme is “National Security in the Age of Disruption” this year, is organised by the Centre of Excellence for National Security of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, with the support of the National Security Coordination Secretariat in the Prime Minister’s Office.
