Asset-Based Cyber Defence (ABCD)

Holistic Cyber Defence Managed Services

for SMEs, Co-Operatives, Social Service Agencies & Charities

As simple as ABC, Asset Based Cyber Defence (ABCD) is a holistic cyber defence solution curated by Singapore’s Cyber Security Agency (CSA), incorporating Cyber Essentials and Data Protection Essentials as defined by Singapore Authorities.

Heron is an authorised partner to deliver ABCD as a managed security service to address the cyber security challenges that SMEs face with increasing digitalisation, such as:

  • Limited visibility of IT assets and criticality to business
  • Difficulty in defending against zero-day attacks, ransomware, advanced malware and insider threats
  • Lack of cyber security resources to maintain 24 x 7 round-the-clock monitoring of critical assets and respond early to anomalies
  • Confused by an ever-expanding array of technology vendors
  • Lack of integration between technologies to detect cyber intrusion and data breaches early to minimise damages
  • Compliance with complex regulatory and customers requirements mandating the protection of private and commercially sensitive data

To encourage Singapore-based SMEs, co-operatives, social service agencies and charities to strengthen their cybersecurity resilience, grants are provided through relevant Government agencies and associations to offset the initial cost of acquiring ABCD services.
