Singapore to have new academy to train cybersecurity professionals

More needs to be done even as Singapore has made “good progress” in building up its cybersecurity capabilities, as it is more exposed than many other countries to cyberattacks, said Acting Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean on Tuesday (Sep 19).

To address this, and as part of efforts to invest in its people, Mr Teo said the Cyber Security Agency (CSA) will develop a new academy to train cybersecurity professionals, and it will partner leading industry partners to train those in government and critical information infrastructure (CII) sectors. This will be opened in the later part of this fiscal year, and will be expanded later to include cybersecurity professionals for the wider community.
