Data protection rules governing Singapore's public sector, known as Instruction Manual 8 (IM8), will be updated in 2020 to be in line with existing rules for the private sector. The updated IM8 follows recommendations aimed to make data protection measures clearer and plug gaps.

The proposals that were announced on 27 Nov 2019 were made by the Public Sector Data Security Review Committee. NUS Computing Professor Atreyi Kankanhalli praised the steps the review committee had proposed to bridge the gap between the public and private sectors.
