Singtel and the National University of Singapore (NUS) have established a corporate research lab that is hosted in NUS to conduct research, develop capabilities and innovative digital solutions to protect individuals, businesses and public agencies in Singapore from a wide range of cyber threats. The Corp Lab will conduct research in four broad areas of cyber security having strategic relevance to Singtel’s business: (1) Predictive Security Analytics; (2) Network, Data and Cloud Security; (3) Internet-of-Things and Industrial Control Systems; (4) Future-Ready Cyber Security Systems. The Corp Lab is governed by a Management Committee comprising members from National Research Foundation (NRF), National University of Singapore (NUS), and Singtel.
NUS-Singtel Cyber Security Lab seeks to:
– Develop novel data analytics techniques that allow IT service providers to detect and respond to security attacks as they occur in real time
– Come up with new approaches to design and implement IT systems that are “secure by design”, and thus able to resist a broad array of attacks
Over the next 5 years, the NUS-Singtel Cyber Security Lab will host research activities of more than 100 research staff from NUS and Singtel. The Corp Lab also expects to train some 120 new cyber security professionals from undergraduate to postdoctoral level.
