Dear (ISC)2 Singapore Chapter’s Members,
As we have come to the end of 2018, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families aHappy New Year 2019.
A quick summary of the highlights this year, we have concluded the term of 2017-2018 during our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in October 2018, and shared some of the transformations and initiatives the Exco did in the last term to our members. We held 11 Executive Committee Meeting, 4 Educational inhouse event, 4 Networking Event (Aikido, Bowling, movies, Drinks and catch up), and with 2 MOUs signed with 2 different organisation (NTUC U Associate and ISACA) to further our cause to connect the cyber security professionals in Singapore. We participated in several external conferences and forum and received a lot of positive feedback about how the chapter helped increase the awareness of cyber security situation in Singapore.
This year, we concluded the term with a whopping increase of 103% of our membership this year, doubling the numbers in our database, as we continue to pursue our mission to advance the education and professional within Singapore.
In November, we introduced the new executive committee who will be leading this terms through a social cum start up night where we partnered with Cylon to present some of the amazing startup, to celebrate their courage and entrepreneurship and share their start-up experience and journey. We invited guest from DBS, CSA, NTUC U Associate, CSIT, Comfort Delgro to explore potential partnership with members. It was truly a great networking session.
Looking forward to 2019
