Earlier this year, Minister for Communications and Information Yaacob Ibrahim announced that the Government will take steps to address the current shortfall of cybersecurity professionals in Singapore.
The Cyber Security Agency (CSA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) and Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) to groom more talent in this area.
Under the MOUs, the CSA will work with SIT and NYP to develop cybersecurity curricula, research and development projects, as well as provide internship opportunities for students to gain exposure.
CSA will start its collaboration with NYP by co-developing modules under a new Cyber Security Operations Co-operative Programme to prepare students to fill cyber-security roles in the public and private sectors.
