NEC expanded its global portfolio of security operation centres with the launch of a new Cyber Security Factory in Singapore.
“The launch of a 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,” said Tan Boon Chin, Managing Director, Global Safety Division, NEC Corporation.
In a press statement, the company said the newly opened Cyber Security Factory in Singapore will collaborate with NEC’s Security Operations Centres located in strategic parts of the world including Japan.
In 2014, NEC established its first Cyber Security Factory in Japan as a specialized unit dedicated to countering cyber threats and attacks.
NEC is already working with the Singapore government to strengthen the country’s preparedness in combating the latest cyber threats. In particular, NEC and the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) launched the Strategic Attachment and Training (STRAT) Programme to groom the next generation of homegrown IT cyber security experts.
“Facilities such as the Cyber Security Factory will go a long way in helping businesses better manage cyber security challenges. We hope it will inspire more companies to do the same to enhance the cyber security landscape,” said David Koh, Chief Executive, Cyber Security Agency of Singapore.
