NEC Corporation fosters its capabilities in the APAC region; the company has now established a new state-of-the-art Cyber Security Factory in Singapore.
The new security operation centre will collaborate with NEC’s Security Operations Centres located in strategic parts of the world including Japan, with an aim to provide an inter-connected network to share intelligence on cyber threats and deliver 24/7 security to customers.
Previously, NEC has closely worked with the Singapore government to combat cyber threats and has launched the Strategic Attachment and Training (STRAT) Programme to groom the next generation of homegrown IT cyber security experts.
“The establishment of the Cyber Security Factory demonstrates how a global technology company such as NEC has anchored its advanced capabilities and experts in Singapore. Facilities such as the Cyber Security Factory will go a long way in helping businesses better manage cybersecurity challenges. We hope it will inspire more companies to do the same to enhance the cyber security landscape,” said Guest-of-Honour, David Koh, Chief Executive, Cyber Security Agency of Singapore.
“The launch of the Cyber Security Factory in Singapore is an important milestone for NEC. We work with customers to safely secure their information systems and are the first line of defense against malicious cyber-attacks which can cause severe damage to reputation and loss of private data, information and/or revenue. The launch is a timely addition to our suite of public safety solutions, which have been chosen by governments and enterprises to safeguard citizens and their properties more effectively to create safer cities and societies,” said Tan Boon Chin, Managing Director, Global Safety Division, NEC Corporation.
Earlier in 2014, NEC had established its first Cyber Security Factory in Japan to address the growing cyber threats and attacks. The facility in Japan leverages professional surveillance of networks and websites, forensic service for investigating malware sources and information leakage, and team-based hands-on training for security professionals.
