GovernmentWare (GovWare) 2013

The GovernmentWare (GovWare) 2013 organized by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) was held from 1 to 3 Oct 2013. This year, the theme was "Defining the Next Generation Cyber Defence Strategies" to reflect the need to devise effective cyber defence strategies, including better international collaborations and tighter legislative controls, to protect critical infrastructure and information.

The Guest-of-honour was Mr Masagos Zulkifli Bin Masagos Mohamad, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Home Affairs & Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In his keynote, he mentioned the setup of Advanced Cyber Security Training Facility in 2014 by SITSA and Temasek Polytechnic. The partnership was sealed during GovWare 2011 through an Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed.

Singapore Polytechnic is the first academic institute to establish the Cyber Wargame Centre (CWC) in January 2013.With the intense interests in building cyber ranges and cyber security facilities in Singapore to train more IT security professionals, we hope to have a more secure cyber space.
