    Abstract

    As the cybersecurity industry continues to mature, a number of key threads are becoming clear. Individual companies cannot succeed alone; there is no single technology panacea for cybersecurity problems, Nations are starved of talent, and cyber threats are increasingly driven by geopolitics and local context.

    In the last year, BAE Systems has been partnering NTU on joint cyber security research. The ambition is simple. Understand Singapore-specific cyber threats, research innovative local solutions to problems, identify and create local talent, and ultimately grow Singapore’s cyber ecosystem.

    Boye Vanell, BAE Systems Regional Director for Asia, will discuss how working with academia helps stimulate a business, identify new talent, and help develop industry. Following this, Professor Kwok Yan Lam, Principal Investigator for the joint research program at NTU, will provide the latest findings from the ongoing research.
