SingHealth Cyberattack Advisory

Dear SCS members, believe you'd read about the attacks on data records at Singhealth. All patients, whether or not their data has been compromised, will also receive an SMS notification over the next five days. They can also access the Health Buddy mobile app or SingHealth website to check if they are affected by this incident. https://datacheck.singhealth.com.sg/ If you're affected, here's some recommended actions and advice from the good folks at SCS Infocomm Security Chapter.

1. Do NOT panic!

2. Change all passwords both offline and online, if they use permutations of your name or NRIC.

3. Review privacy settings on online user accounts.

4. Review and change security questions based on personal data.

5. Call up your credit card company to change the security question and answer.

6. Be wary of frauds/scams/unauthorized activities, especially those that only require only those few pieces of personal data to authorize/validate.

7. Take extra precautions against phone or online scams, particularly when they know your full name, where you stay, or entice you to reveal your passwords due to the incident.

8. Activate 2FA (two-factor authentication) if you have not done so.

9. Do not reply to unsolicited emails or social media invitations. If you receive such from people you know, confirm with them offline before accepting.

10. Consider changing your user ID (where possible) if it is based on your NRIC, DoB or Postal Code.
