Singapore: Launch of national scheme to build cybersecurity talent in government

The Singapore government will introduce a Cybersecurity Professional Scheme to attract, develop and retain cybersecurity practitioners in the public sector, said its Minister for Communications & Information (MCI) Dr Yaacob Ibrahim. The scheme will be centrally managed by the national Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) and will develop a core of specialists to be deployed across the public sector to support the city-state’s cyber defences. It will be operational from July this year, said MCI.
