Exco Announcement - 25 Jan 2021
Wishing you a Safe and Happy 2021.
It's 2021! I believe most like me have started the year with the usual BUSY ness. January is the month our Chapter Exco and Sub Committee start to plan our workplan and objectives for the year. While the details are being populated, we kick started January with our learningNeverStops sharing by Aloysius Cheang, our Singapore's representative at (ISC)2 global board, on 20 Jan 2021. It was a good turnout and we had lots of exchanges during the Q&As on how to achieve zero trust security with supply chain attack of the like of recent Solarwind incident. Thank you Aloysius for doing this sharing out of UAE.
Chinese New Year is around the corner, traditionally we would have our annual members Lo Hei social gathering, this year due to the pandemic this cannot be organised. We are thinking of a virtual social event and am thinking about what we can do. If you are willing to supply your own beers and join us virtually, we think we can bring you good conversations and well wishes for sure. Let us know if you have an idea.
In the meantime, stay safe and stay tune for news on our activities. Join us.
President (ISC)2 Singapore Chapter
(ISC)² Singapore Chapter is a non profit member community of (ISC)² 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 programmes provides 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 (ISC)² credentialed professionals who hold either a SSCP, CAP, CSSLP, and/or a CISSP or advanced concentration certification. We have more than 300 members and am growing fast. We have a wide spectrum of members; Students, Practicing Professionals in different specialisations, Senior leaders in the Cyber business and Senior Security Officers and Advisors in Gov Agencies and Industries.
How is the Chapter run?
The chapter is run by a group of dedicated Exco volunteers who meet monthly to plan and organise professional events and activities throughout the year. Visit our Executive Committee page to see our team for this year.
What events do we organise?
We try to have a mixture of fun and learning in the events we organise. We aim to organise an event every month of the year. 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. You will have friends in various specialisations to consult when you need help; information security has many domains and we often are not an expert in everything. Coming together as a community allow us to engage and work collective with Government Agencies and Industries Bodies on standards and polices.
