The Association of Information Security Professionals (AiSP) launched a Singapore-first mentorship programme on 26 Nov 19 by Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Communications and Information & Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, Ms Sim Ann that will groom female cybersecurity professionals in the republic. This move will boost the number and skillsets of female cybersecurity talent, address the shortage of cybersecurity professionals needed to tackle escalating online threats, and enable women to play a bigger role in the nation’s defence.
CyberSecurity Students Awarded for Contributions to Singapore’s CyberSecurity EcoSystem
Five students received the Student Volunteer & Recognition Programme (SVRP) Gold Award for their contributions to Singapore’s cybersecurity ecosystem, at the Association of Information Security Professionals’ (AiSP) inaugural SVRP Award Ceremony on 6 Nov 19. The awards were presented by Guest of Honour Ms Sim Ann, Senior Minister of State for Communications and Information. There were also 33 Silver and 47 Bronze Award recipients.
Cybersecurity for High-Performance Computing (HPC) is an important topic as HPC infrastructure will
be the workhorse for Smart Nation computational workloads such as modelling & simulation and digital
twins. Traditional HPC infrastructure is set up differently from enterprise servers, and thus, it is
important to understand Supercomputing and the appropriate security measures. This is aligned with
the theme of SupercomputingAsia 2020, “HPC Empowering Intelligent Cities”. We are privileged to have
thought leaders in cybersecurity to join us for this half-day afternoon session to provide their
technical insights! This inaugural HPC Cybersecurity Workshop is organised by the Centre for Strategic
Cyberspace + International Studies (CSCIS) and the National Supercomputing Centre Singapore and colocated
with SupercomputingAsia 2020.
Join us for the exciting programme at 1:30pm. However, you are invited to join the SCA2020 Opening
Ceremony at 9am, followed by lunch at 12.30pm. The programme will end with a lucky draw and a wine
networking session*. For details of the exciting programme, please click
