VOLUNTEER OUTREACH 2021 YEAREND SUMMARY
HAPPY NEW YEAR! In 2021, the (ISC)2 SG Volunteer Outreach Team has been conducting the Cyber Tips for Families Cybersecurity Awareness Programme for schools, families, communities, charities and industry organizations. The learning materials were developed over the years using contextualized (ISC)2 materials, industry best practices and local resources. Fun and gamification elements have also been included for different stakeholders by using Cyber videos, Kahoot! Quizzes, Garfield comics and other cool prizes for the participants. The following Cyber Tips sessions have been scheduled during the past year:
- TKGS (Tanjong Katong Girls' School)
- Dads for Life (15 Singapore schools represented)
- Yumin Primary School
- Gan En Seng Primary School
- Cantonment Primary School
- Healthcare Cybersecurity Essentials for Clinics
- Cyber Career Talks
- Several other schools and volunteers have also expressed their interest in the Cyber Tips programme.
As part of CSA's (Cyber Security Agency of Singapore) initiatives, (ISC)2 SG Volunteers have answered the call of the Cyber Security Awareness Alliance for the SG Cyber Safe programmes such as the following initiatives:
- Baseline Mark & Trustmark Industry Consultation Forum as part of the cyber standards development process.
- IMDA Digital Pods: Ask the Cyber Experts webinar series with over 230 participants.
- CSA SG Cyber Day Videos
The (ISC)2 Singapore Chapter also initiated its Cyber Career Mentorship Progamme for those who have just started a career in Cybersecurity. We have Volunteer Mentors who have been veterans in the field to provide Mentees with guidance on what they can do in this exciting new career. The first batch of participants completed their Cyber Career Mentorship 2021 Programme over a period of 6 months and we are now ready for the next batch of Cyber Career Mentorship 2022 Programme participants.
