Singapore will have a National Cybersecurity R&D Laboratory for cybersecurity experiments.
A National Cybersecurity R&D Laboratory at the National University of Singapore (NUS) will be operational by the end of this year, announced Chairman of A*STAR Lim Chuan Poh on Thursday (Jan 14).
Speaking at the inaugural Singapore Cybersecurity R&D conference, Mr Lim said the NUS School of Computing’s security research group will be tasked with setting up the laboratory.
He said the laboratory will be a shared national research infrastructure which can be used by the local research community and industry. This includes for the validation of research outcomes and for collaborative work with industry or international partners.
He added that the R&D facility will also curate useful datasets for cybersecurity experiments.
The two-day conference, held at the Singapore University of Technology and Design, brings together about 400 academics and practitioners. It focuses on the importance of design in integrating cybersecurity into a system early rather than as an afterthought.
