InsiderSecurity was cited by Minister Iswaran on how our tech is securing Singaporean organisations in his Total Defence Day 2019 speech.

“I am happy that local companies such as SgCarMart and the Singapore College of Insurance have already adopted solutions by InsiderSecurity, a homegrown cybersecurity company founded by Singaporean cyber warfare experts and accredited by IMDA’s Accreditation@SGD programme.” said Minister Iswaran.

InsiderSecurity is proud to be cited by Mr. S Iswaran, Minister for Communications and Information and Minister-in-Charge of Cybersecurity in his speech during the Total Defence Day Commemoration on last February 15, 2019. 

Minister Iswaran talked about various digital threats that took place globally and in Singapore, underscoring how these can be as destructive as physical threats like terrorism. He then called on the nation to play a part in this national effort to fight cyber threats, with various Government Agencies and businesses taking the necessary steps to strengthen security strategies. Minister Iswaran gave the example where Singaporean organisations are adopting InsiderSecurity’s cybersecurity solution.

As a homegrown cybersecurity firm accredited by IMDA, we are thankful for the opportunity to serve fellow Singapore companies, defending them from cyber attackers hiding inside the network.

With cybersecurity increasing in importance each day, we at InsiderSecurity will be building on our strengths in Early Breach Detection and Cybersecurity Behaviour Analytics to make Singapore a safer place.

CNA interview with InsiderSecurity CEO

CNA Interview: InsiderSecurity CEO on the challenge of finding cybersecurity talents in Singapore

In an interview with Channel News Asia, our CEO, Jonathan Phua, talked about the challenge of finding the right talents who can fill positions in the local cybersecurity industry.

In an interview with Channel NewsAsia, our CEO, Jonathan Phua, talked about the challenge of finding the right cybersecurity talents, who can fill positions in the local cybersecurity industry. Singapore, like many countries, is experiencing a shortage of cybersecurity professionals. This makes it difficult for many organisations to get strong cybersecurity. The higher demand for experienced cybersecurity professionals also means higher hiring costs.

Immediate shortage aside, there are good reasons for Singapore to develop its cybersecurity talents.

“It is vital for Singapore to grow our own cybersecurity talents because of two reasons. First, Singapore has a good shot at becoming a major cybersecurity hub. We have the right people and infrastructure. Second, if not for economics, then for national defense, as cybersecurity is already the sixth pillar of Total Defence,” explained Phua.

Attracting cybersecurity professionals need not always be via higher salaries. There are applicants who join companies not just because of the financial compensation, but also for the value of the product or service they see that those companies are producing. “Within InsiderSecurity, we have been fortunate in that we have been able to attract talents, as we are doing exciting, cutting-edge work,” said Phua.

InsiderSecurity is helping address the current talent shortage by continuing to develop automated cyber threat detection technology, that helps companies with even small IT teams cope with cyber threats.
