STUDENT VOLUNTEER & RECOGNITION PROGRAMME (SVRP)

The SVRP aims to encourage volunteerism amongst students while developing their interest in cybersecurity. It is organised by the Association of Information Security Professionals and backed by the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA), with support from the National Youth Council and private sector players; Singtel, Trend Micro, Booz Allen Hamilton and Ensign InfoSecurity.

The programme will see the involvement of institutions such as the Singapore Universities, Institute of Technical Education and Singapore Polytechnics with educators encouraging students to explore their potential in cybersecurity and develop their personal and professional abilities through volunteerism.

AISP President, Dr Steven Wong said: “The SVRP provides students with opportunities to hone their interest in cybersecurity and make broad and in-depth contributions. The involvement of our partners who are key industry players, such as Singtel and Ensign InfoSecurity, allow students to gain industry experience and eventually become cybersecurity professionals to meet the growing demand for such talents in Singapore today.”
