• First private healthcare group in Singapore to achieve Advocate tier certification

• Certification recognises commitment to a high standard in its cybersecurity posture

SINGAPORE, 27 June 2024 - Foundation Healthcare Holdings Pte. Ltd. (“FHH”), a leading multi-specialty private healthcare group in Singapore, announced today that it has achieved the Cyber Trust mark (Advocate) tier, which is a national cybersecurity standard spearheaded by the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA). FHH is the first private healthcare group in Singapore to attain certification at this tier, demonstrating its commitment to being a trusted leader in the healthcare industry.

The Cyber Trust mark is awarded to organisations that have implemented robust cybersecurity measures which commensurate with their risk profile. The certification has five tiers, with Advocate tier, requiring organisations to be independently assessed across 22 domains within 5 broad areas: Cyber Governance and Oversight, Cyber Education, Information Asset Protection, Secure Access and Environment, and Cybersecurity Resilience. During the assessment, FHH demonstrated its capability in managing and safeguarding critical information assets, ensuring the security of patients' data and sensitive information.

Yit Ming Liaw, CEO of Foundation Healthcare Holdings, said, "We are proud to be the first private healthcare group to receive the Cyber Trust mark (Advocate) tier certification from CSA. This recognition affirms our dedication to setting new benchmarks in private healthcare cybersecurity in Singapore. As we embrace the upcoming Healthcare Information Bill, which will introduce new standards and regulations for data security and privacy, Foundation is well-positioned to meet and exceed these requirements.

"Cybersecurity is not merely an operational necessity but a fundamental pillar of trust and integrity to our patients, partners, and stakeholders. We would like to express our gratitude to the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore and Cybersafe, our cybersecurity partner, for helping to make this achievement possible."

As one of Singapore’s largest and fastest growing multi-speciality private healthcare groups, FHH is focused on transforming and strengthening the foundations of the healthcare system by enabling stakeholders to work closely together - to build a better healthcare system that is patient-centric and efficient.
