    Some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

    Q: How much time commitment is the Mentorship Programmes for mentees and mentors?

    A: Both mentors and mentees will be asked to join the Programme Kick Off meeting, the Mentor/Mentee briefing, the Mid-way Checkpoint and the Closing Ceremony; these will take ~1 hour adding up to 4 hours. Additionally, all participants will organise 1:1 meetings with their matched mentor or mentee. We recommend at least 3 meetings during the 6 months period, and up to 6 meetings is recommended. Each mentor/mentee meeting will take about an hour.


    Q: I have never mentored or I was never mentored before, I am not sure of the process.

    A: No problem! Upon the start of the programme, we will provide both mentors and mentees with a dedicated group briefing where we will share best practices about mentoring. Should you need further advice, you can always reach out to us.


    Q: I am a working adult but I never worked in cybersecurity and want to make a switch. Is the Mentorship Programme right for me?

    A: Yes, we encourage people without prior cybersecurity experience to join the programme. Mentees will be able to tap on the knowledge of experienced mentors who can guide them during their career pivot.


    Q: What can I expect from the Mentorship Programme?

    A: As a mentee, you will be asked to set a goal for yourself, and leverage the knowledge and expertise of your mentor to help you navigate and achieve it. Like in any mentorship programme, the more you invest yourself in it, the more you will get out of it.


    As a mentor, you will be sharpening your coaching and leadership skills and pay it forward for the community, as well as meeting new people to expand your network.

    CSA Industry Consultation Forum on Baseline Mark and Trustmark


    Dear (ISC)2 SG Chapter members,

    The Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) has recently launched the SG Cyber Safe Programme in March this year, to better support enterprises in the digital domain. As part of the slate of initiatives that will be introduced under the programme, CSA plans to develop a Trustmark, which is intended to serve as a mark of excellence for enterprises with leading cybersecurity practices, as well as the Baseline Mark, which is a cyber hygiene mark that indicates that companies have put in place basic cybersecurity measures. The development of the Trustmark and Baseline Mark will be put through the standards development process, and as part of the process, CSA will be holding stakeholder consultations with different group of enterprises to take their feedback and views on the proposed implementation approach.

    CSA is keen to engage enterprises who have, or are contemplating undergoing certification in cybersecurity and/or adjacent areas such as data protection. As such, CSA and (ISC)2 will be conducting a two-hour online Focus Group Discussion (FGD) to seek members’ views on their proposed approaches for the Trustmark and Baseline Mark. Details for the FGD are as follows:

    Date: 29 June 2021

    Time: 7pm - 9pm

    Platform: Zoom (link to be shared later to the participants)

    Target FGD Representatives: Individuals who had experience with managing their companies’ certification in cybersecurity / data protection and are familiar with cybersecurity matters within the organisation (up to two pax).

    If you are keen to participate in this FGD, do register by 22 June 2021. Please be assured that your views shared during the FGD will remain confidential, and no names will be cited in any document or forum.

    SYNOPSIS

    Infrastructure as Code (IaC) makes deploying cloud or container configurations scalable and faster. If you are launching a microservice into a Kubernetes cluster, or even building an entire AWS virtual infrastructure, IaC can automate the deployment. By building repeatable templates you can also ensure that deployments happen exactly as you design, every time. However, errors in infrastructure configuration are now regarded as the second biggest cause of data breaches. There are many ways to give adversaries an advantage through security misconfigurations. Overly permissive storage volumes, unauthenticated database access, or ports left open to the internet have all been a cause of compromise. The solution? Treat your infrastructure code the same as your application code. During your build process, use tools to scan for infrastructure misconfigurations. When you find them raise alerts or even break the build.

    In this session, we will discuss common types of IaC misconfigurations, and demonstrate a free, open-source security tool that developers can build into their pipelines to help protect infrastructure from compromise.
