Subex hosted the first edition of its Cyber security Symposium :
Subex hosted the first edition of its Cyber security Symposium with Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The Symposium aimed towards creating a collaborative platform for the industry and academia to discuss ideas and initiatives around cyber security education. Representing NTU Singapore was esteemed NTU Academician and cybe rsecurity practitioner Prof Lam Kwok Yan, who provided his overview of the cyber security landscape in Singapore and perspectives on how the lessons learnt can be applied to the Indian ecosystem.
The Cyber security symposium also witnessed the formation of a Cyber Security Academic Forum with the objective of establishing an ecosystem in the country for cyber security research to emerge and grow, with the main mission to foster ‘A Safer Cyberspace’. This forum will provide a unique opportunity to meet and discuss the current issues of cyber disruption and the ever-changing landscape of cyber security and IoT security related threats.
Speaking at the Cyber security Symposium, Vinod Kumar, CEO and MD, Subex said, “With increasing threats in the Indian and Global cyberspace, we believe that education and awareness around cyber security will play an important role towards preparing and securing our critical assets against these threats. However, the topic of cyber security is yet to gain prominence within colleges in India, leading to gaps in the available talent pool. We are extremely proud to be partner with NTU Singapore to host the Cyber security symposium, and play a part in addressing this gap. The symposium witnessed collaborative discussions and brainstorm sessions between the industry and academia to identify ways to improve cyber security education in the country. Having Prof. Lam Kwok Yanprovide his expertise on the topic was of tremendous value.
