ST Electronics Launches the DigiSAFE Cyber Security Centre 01 October 2013

Singapore, 1 October 2013ST Electronics today announced the launch of its DigiSAFE Cyber Security Centre.  Set up by its wholly owned subsidiary, ST Electronics (Info-Security) Pte Ltd, the Centre will house a training facility that offers advanced cyber defender training courses with a state-of-the art training system that will emulate real-world attacks on enterprise networks in a controlled environment.  It is located in Jurong East at the Devan Nair Institute for Employment and Employability and is expected to begin operations in November 2013.

Increasing incidents of cyber security and related fraud, as well as espionage and attacks from organised groups are making the news on a daily basis.  There is a growing need for cyber professionals.  To help address the critical shortfall of experts in this industry, the new DigiSAFE Cyber Security Centre will offer cyber security training tailored for both new entrants and seasoned professionals to develop and horn their competencies in this area.

The Centre allows organisations to simulate their own Security Operation Centre (SOC) environments and train in a realistic operational situation which include red/blue teaming scenario plays.  Trainees will be equipped with the latest operational cyber security skill sets through the courseware offered.

ST Electronics is participating in the GovernmentWare 2013 (GovWare) Exhibition held at Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre, from 1st to 3rd October 2013.  Showcasing the capabilities of its DigiSAFE Cyber Security Centre and the simulated SOC environment, ST Electronics will also demonstrate state-of-the-art technologies for the protection of critical assets and Cyber Security Systems.
