Report data incident (2)


*NEW* Government Data Incident Reporting Platform

Everyone in the community can play their part in strengthening and safeguarding government ICT (information and communications technology) systems, digital services, and data. Members of the public can now report incidents involving any unauthorised disclosure or compromise of government data on our government data incident reporting platform.

We look forward to working with you to strengthen the overall public sector data security regime. 



What you can do to help:

✔️ Before making a report, do keep in mind that you should act responsibly when reporting a suspected data incident and safeguarding data from unauthorised use or loss.

✔️ Do conduct yourself in accordance with applicable laws and regulations at all times. Note: Under no circumstances should you attempt to make a false report, publish details of any suspected data incidents involving government data or recklessly or intentionally use government data for wrongful gain.

✔️ Upon detection of a suspected government data incident, notify us as soon as possible by submitting a report to us by filling in the Incident Reporting Form. This will enable the Smart Nation & Digital Government Group (SNDGG) to conduct an investigation promptly.

✔️ Please provide your contact details in the Incident Reporting Form so that you may be reached for clarifications, and for us to provide you with a status update following our investigation.

✔️ Please provide adequate information in the Incident Reporting Form so that we can investigate the suspected data incident thoroughly. It would take approximately 10 minutes to complete the form.

✔️ Upon submitting records of evidence to SNDGG, please dispose of all evidence immediately in an appropriate manner.
