NYP-ST Electronics (Info-Security) Collaboration for Cyber Security Certification Course
School of Information Technology
NYP and ST Electronics (Info-Security) signed a MOU to jointly design, develop and deliver “Cyber Security Operations Specialist Certification” course and examination during the official opening of ST Electronics DigiSAFE Cyber Security Centre at the Devan Nair Institute for Employment and Employability at Jurong East on the 6th June 2014. The Centre was officially opened by Ms Jacqueline Poh, Managing Director of Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore.
With the proliferation and growing sophistication of ill-intentioned cyber attackers, the importance of defence operations in cyber space has never been more critical. The collaborations aim to provide highly sophisticated operations-centric cyber security training that better prepares cyber security professionals in the detection and prevention of cyber-attacks. The programmes allow trainees to experience and respond to the extensive kill-chain of real-world malicious attacks in a realistic environment.
The MOU is expected to enhance Singapore’s cyber security competency level and bridge the increasing needs for better equipped cyber security professionals, and drives the sharing of best practices in this area.
