ISC2 Singapore Chapter is a not-for-profit member community of ISC2 credential holders in Singapore. We aim to advance the Singapore ecosystem of Cyber and Information System Security Professionals. We provide members with the opportunity to build a local network of peers to share knowledge, exchange resources, collaborate on projects, and create new ways to earn CPE credits.
Our chapter programs provide members access to knowledge sharing from Government Agencies and Industry leaders. The community is focus on helping the development of leaders and professionals in information systems security. We strive to keep our members informed of the latest advances in technology, techniques and policies. We also promote awareness of the profession and educate the public on how to defend against security threats.
Who are we?
Our members consist of ISC2 credentialed professionals who hold either a CISSP, CCSP, CGRC, CSSLP, SSCP and/or a CC or advanced concentration certification. We have more than 600 members and are growing fast. We have a wide spectrum of members; full-time students, practicing professionals in different specializations, senior leaders in the cybersecurity business and senior security officers and advisors in government agencies and various industries.
How is the Chapter run?
The chapter is run by a group of dedicated volunteers serving on the Executive Committee (EXCO) and Sub-Committee. These volunteers commit their precious time to meet monthly to plan and organize professional events and activities throughout the year for the benefit of the chapter members and the community. Visit our Executive Committee page to see our team for this year.
What events do we organize?
We aim to have a mixture of fun and learning in the events that we organize. Our aim is for our members to earn a substantial amount of CPEs from our activities. We have a full year calendar of social and professional events; from Chinese New Year Lo Hei, Bowling, Movie Night, Industries Talks at SMU, Conferences, Government Engagement and Industry Visits. Visit our Events page for our calendar of upcoming events!
Why join us?
CPEs is just one of the many benefits. The local chapter allow the community to come together to learn, network and share. Refer to the Chapter Focus Areas to see how you can contribute and benefit from being a part of the local chapter.
E.g., You will have friends in various specializations to consult when you need help; information security has many domains, and we are often not an expert in everything. Coming together as a community allow us to engage and work collectively to learn and share thought-leadership on industry trends and provide industry consultation with Government Agencies and Industries Bodies on standards and policies.

Last year in 2022, we celebrated the 10th anniversary of the ISC2 Singapore Chapter and a decade of strong community-building in Singapore. The chapter hosted a series of workshops, seminars and activities over the course of the year and had published an e-Flipbook named 'The Journey So Far' with a compilation of contributed write-ups from chapter leaders, industry leaders and members, documenting the journey travelled so far for the chapter. The chapter also hosted her flagship Cyber Secure Singapore 2022 conference event on 20th October alongside GovWare where 150 of the members joined us at the successful event. Close to 200 of our chapter members joined us at the inaugural Chapter Members Reception post the Cyber Secure Singapore event.
This year, the chapter EXCO and Sub-Committee members have lined up a pipeline of workshops, seminars and activities over the course of the year. This year we are bringing back the Capture-the-Flag event and Cyber Range workshops in addition to wellness workshops, Earth Day 2023 ‘Trash-the-Trash’ environment sustainability activity and many more. We will also have the flagship chapter conference Cyber Secure Singapore 2023. I encourage you to keep a lookout of the upcoming events and join us at these events and activities.
I am looking forward to your participation and meeting all of you, fellow members of the chapter at all the afore-mentioned member activities and at the flagship Cyber Secure Singapore 2023 and Chapter Members Reception 2023.
