Singapore to boost pool of cyber-security experts over next 5 years

SINGAPORE: Singapore is ramping up its supply of cyber-security experts through a training programme that will be conducted in Israel.

RSA, the security division of American IT solutions company EMC, announced on Wednesday that it will be working with the Economic Development Board (EDB) on a multi-year agreement to train some 2,500 Singaporeans in cyber-security over the next five years.

The move is to address the global shortage of qualified cyber security professionals needed to defend critical IT infrastructures in civilian and government organisations.
