IMDA's regular evaluation of infocomm regulations and guidelines is essential in maintaining alignment with social norms and values and ensuring that IMDA regulations stay current and relevant.
To better protect people in Singapore from online scams, IMDA is using a new system for text messages. SMS messages with unregistered Sender IDs will be replaced with the “Likely-SCAM” Sender ID. This serves to warn the recipient that the sender has not registered itself with SMS Sender ID Registry (SSIR) and that the SMS message may potentially be a scam.Closed
More choices, no bill shocks, and better protection all round for consumers; these are some of the goals of policies and regulations developed by IMDA to create a conducive infocomm environment that is both pro-consumer and pro-business.
With data protection and cloud security policies, IMDA aims to boost consumer confidence in the safe use of infocomm technologies and services.
