Who we are
IMDA is a driving force behind Singapore's digital transformation efforts by building the foundations of its digital infrastructure and driving digital innovation for a vibrant digital workforce and a safe and inclusive digital society that can thrive in today's fast-evolving digital industry in Singapore.
The IMDA develops and regulates the infocomm and media sectors to create a dynamic, holistic and exciting ecosystem filled with growth opportunities through talent, research, innovation and enterprise. Singapore has laid the foundation for a thriving ecosystem. As Architects of Singapore’s Digital Future, we strive to ensure businesses, the workforce and the public are ready for a future enabled by infocomm and digital media.
As a statutory board in the Singapore government, we seek to deepen regulatory capabilities for a converged infocomm media sector to safeguard the interests of consumers and foster pro-enterprise regulations. Amid the growing use of data, we will also continue to support data protection and innovation in Singapore through our Personal Data Protection Commission to boost public confidence in how personal data is used in the private sector.
