Singtel opens new cyber security training hub

Singapore Telecommunications (Singtel) has launched a new training centre that enables enterprises to improve cyber security ability and test their current networks’ response to cyber threats.

The Singtel Cyber-Security Institute (CSI)’s training modules will be available to executives such as operational pros and C-suite managers, who will receive training in awareness of cyber threats, crisis communications preparation, risk management and continuity planning. Technology and operations teams will get training to improve their ability to defend and respond.

The new centre will include a feature that simulates a cyber attack and tests an organisation’s flaws, as well as its ability to defend and respond to threats. Unlike similar training hubs, it can replicate a company’s working environment, along with a range of the latest threats. A wide range of malware and viruses can be employed in simulating attacks.

CEO of Singtel group enterprise, Bill Chang, said:

“Based on our engagements with companies in Singapore, more than 85 percent do not have robust cyber-response plans nor the opportunity to conduct realistic drills to test and sharpen such plans. This lack of cyber preparedness is worsened by the severe global shortfall of trained cyber-security experts, which Forbes puts at some one million in 2016.”

The centre will help to improve much needed skills in the modern workplace in Singapore, but what about businesses in the UK that are no less vulnerable to an attack? They need to assess the cyber skills that currently exist in the workplace and perhaps take a long look at whether they have been sufficiently prioritising their IT security recruitment activity.
