As Singapore harnesses technology to improve lives and livelihoods for all, it is imperative that our plans are built on a strong foundation of cybersecurity, without which we would be exposing ourselves to the multitude of threats that lurk in cyberspace.
The Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) was formed in 2015 and has been given the task of protecting Singapore’s cyberspace.
It is part of the Prime Minister’s Office and is managed by the Ministry of Communications and Information.
About the Programme
The Cybersecurity Development Programme (CSDP) seeks to groom recent graduates to be cybersecurity professionals to contribute to Singapore’s digital economy and digital government.
It is part of our efforts to build cybersecurity capabilities in the public sector.
With Singapore stepping up its digitalisation efforts, coupled with cyber threats continuing to grow in scale and sophistication, the demand for cybersecurity professionals will continue to grow.
Hence, there is a need to strengthen the pipeline of skilled professionals by identifying and nurturing individuals with the right aptitude and skills to join and subsequently take on cybersecurity roles.
The Cybersecurity Development Programme (CSDP) is an intensive work and training programme to groom cybersecurity professionals.
The programme will last 18 months, and consist of technical training in the first 3 months, followed by practical work experience in one of the identified technical divisions for exposure in various areas of cybersecurity such as :
The technical training consists of industry certification courses and 60 credits of SUTD courses to attain the SUTD ModularMasters in Cybersecurity (equivalent to a Post-Graduate Diploma), giving participants a head start to obtaining the Master of Science in Security by Design with SUTD if they would like to pursue further studies on their own.
Please submit your detailed CV (including Date of Birth) and a cover page / one-page write-up of your passion for technology and / or cybersecurity by giving specific examples through your work experience, internship, academic projects, competition and hackathon and how your technical skills can value add to CSA.
