SINGAPORE: Plans are in the pipeline to grow Singapore's pool of cyber-security experts. The Singapore Infocomm Technology Security Authority has partnered Temasek Polytechnic to set up a Cyber Security Training Facility in 2014.
This was announced by Senior Minister of State for Home Affairs Masagos Zulkifli at the 22nd GovernmentWare conference Tuesday morning.
This training facility will provide a platform for students to hone their technical skills through hands-on training.
The three-day conference will see local and international speakers share with delegates insights on the evolving landscape of IT security.
Mr Masagos said that Singapore's cyber-defence strategies must shift away from a reactive model towards one that is more proactive and intelligence-based.
He said: "For example, early detection and sense-making capabilities are critical to develop a keen awareness of the cyber-security landscape. Having high-performance analytics can help us discover and investigate potential threats in real time.
"In the event of a cyber incident, a robust monitoring and response structure can mitigate any damage caused."
He added that international networks of collaborations and tighter legislative controls are crucial to protect systems and secure cyberspace for future generations.
As such, Interpol will host a new Digital Crime Centre within the Interpol Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore next year. The Digital Crime Centre will support cyber crime investigations as well as research and development to strengthen international policing.
For Singapore, the IGCI will be a useful platform to exchange information about emerging trends and practical experiences in combating transnational crime.
