Individuals, companies, and other organizations increasingly use electronic means for executing transactions, including the transfer of money.

Due to cybersecurity concerns and the potential for forgery, the Singaporean government has a legal framework in place to regulate the use of electronic transactions and protect parties from fraud or other wrongs.

The Electronic Transactions Act (ETA) was enacted in Singapore to provide such a framework, covering areas such as contract formation and performance, information retention, authentication procedures, dispute resolution, and more.
