The Singapore Cybersecurity Consortium is created for engagement between industry, academia and government agencies to encourage use-inspired research, translation, manpower training and technology awareness in cybersecurity. The Consortium is funded by the National Research Foundation (NRF) and anchored at the National University of Singapore (NUS) since 1 September 2016.

For Companies

Singapore-incorporated companies with interest and expertise in cybersecurity are welcome to apply for Consortium membership to engage in a variety of activities, research and development opportunities in close interaction with Institutes of Higher Learning and government agencies, who are represented in the Consortium.


Please write to us for membership application and enquiries. Members joining by March 2017 are entitled to membership fee discount.

For Individuals

Practitioners and individuals with interest in cybersecurity are welcome to join the Consortium mailing list to receive notification of Consortium's activities that are open to public for enrichment and training purposes.

Activities

  • Quarterly Technology Talk Series

    Academics, practitioners and enthusiasts can gather for half-a-day or one day, once every quarter to intensively discuss specific topics in information security. The views and discussions in the talk series are summarized through an annual report to help the Consortium funnel the discussions into translatable action items, such as match-making industry academia partners for possible translation funding applications.

  • Annual Cybersecurity Camp

    The Consortium organizes an annual Cybersecurity camp with lectures and tutorials from international and local researchers, as well as hands-on sessions via hackathons and mini-competition. The sessions in the camp could capture the topics relevant to the different SIGs.

  • Annual Wild and Crazy Ideas (WACI) Day

    Industry, government, and academia are invited to make short and impromptu presentations with a lot of room for brainstorming. Participants sharing their ideas on the WACI Day could influence the grant call on challenge problems to be shaped by the Consortium, through which seed grants will be given out.

  • Special Interest Groups

    Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are set up for various themes in Cybersecurity, with an anchor institution for each theme. The groups meet regularly to discuss ideas and solutions to challenges in the field.

  • Periodic Grant Calls

    The Consortium drives a periodic grant call on specific Challenge Problems in Security and Privacy, to encourage unconventional ideas which may not often be written up as a research projects, and to do so in a targeted fashion for specific challenge problems identified. This also provides a direct opportunity to member companies to articulate the major gaps in technology which can benefit from further research.

  • Student Projects Match-Up

    The Consortium invites Institutions of Higher Learning (IHLs) to nominate student projects and course projects with translation potential, for a chance to match up with companies. Students and faculty members of identified projects are invited to apply for 12-18 month seed funding.

Membership Benefits

  • Invitation to Annual Camp

    Members are offered complimentary passes to the annual Cybersecurity Camp, which features lectures and hands-on sessions by prominent international and local researchers.

  • Technology Talk and WACI Day

    Members are offered complimentary passes to the Technology Talk Series and the WACI Day, which not only provide technology updates but also serve as a networking platform for companies and provide opportunities for them to tap on expertise in Singapore and worldwide for up-gradation of their Cybersecurity technologies.

  • Voicing Challenge Problems

    Members are invited to articulate their inputs on challenge problems in thematic areas of their interest, thereby potentially influencing the grant call on challenge problems in security and privacy.

  • Seed Funding

    Members are invited to partner with seed funded projects awarded by the Consortium, which can help establish relationships between industry and IHL, making a clearer case for their Industry-IHL Partnership (IIP) applications to be considered for funding. Members may be eligible for limited waiver of conditions for eligibility of IIP grants, subject to final approval from NRF.

  • Access to Research Personnel

    Members have access to university personnel at reduced overhead, getting the maximum out of their research investment through such partnerships.

  • Access to Talents

    Members have access to university students/talent presenting their projects, which may help in hiring and internship purposes.

  • Experimentation and training at NCL

    Members are offered access to the National Cybersecurity Lab (NCL) for experimentation and hands-on training at discounted rates.

  • Technology Licensing

    The Consortium could negotiate on behalf of the members for better licensing terms through NRF for non-exclusive licensing of technologies created from the initial set of National Cybersecurity projects (NCR) funded by NRF, as long as such licensing does not violate the terms and conditions of any research collaboration agreements (RCAs) already signed for the corresponding NCR project.
