On Wednesday, 31 August, we held our first in-person Cybersecurity Innovation Day since 2019! The turnout was great, with a wide range of attendees including academia, cybersecurity professionals, investors and companies from startups to multinational corporations.
The main programme was kickstarted with an opening speech by Mr Brian Koh, Director of NUS Enterprise, who shared about NUS Enterprise and the importance of innovation.
Mr Brian Koh then introduced SMS Janil Puthucheary, Senior Minister of State for Communications and Information, who spoke about the rapidly expanding demand for cybersecurity solutions worldwide. He highlighted Asset Based Cyber Defence, a solution developed by SecureAge, InsiderSecurity and ReaQta, which is now being used by more than a hundred customers to monitor various cyber threats. He also shared that CyberOwl, a UK-based company, will be starting an R&D team here in Singapore.
Thereafter, the award ceremony for the CyberCall 2021 was held. Mr David Koh, Chief Executive of CSA, presented certificates of appreciation to the panel of tech experts for CyberCall 2021, while SMS Janil presented awards for the 11 winning projects.
The second half of the programme saw the launch of the CyberCall 2022, with seven challenge statements put forth by GIC, HTX, Mediacorp, PacificLight Power, SMRT, and SP Group.
After the main event, participants enjoyed a networking and booth visit session featuring projects from both 2021 awardees as well as winners from previous CyberCalls.
To all interested solution providers, CyberCall 2022 Call for Proposals is now open. You may submit your innovative solutions by 30 November 2022, 2359 hours.
