FIVE (5) Things You Probably Didn't Know About Our Course (DISM)

1. DISM is different from secondary school because …
Unlike a typical classroom lesson, lessons here are pretty much hands on! At DISM, we train you to combat cyber crime by putting you through different scenarios of cyber crime. Each scenario has its own set of challenges and you will have to adopt different strategies to solve them. We also have a league competition where students pit their skills against one another and are awarded points on completion of each scenario. Apart from winning points, students often feel a great sense of achievement once they have conquered a scenario!

2. A lot of your time will be spent in …
The Cyber Wargame Centre! As the name suggests, it is literally a game of war in cyberspace. During lessons, you will be given cyber crime scenarios to tackle. In every scenario, there will always be the good guys (defenders), the bad guys (attackers) and the cops (investigators). You will play any one of these roles and will attempt to penetrate enemy defences, defend yourself against intruders, or be the detective to find out how and why the cyber crime took place.

3. A lot of your time will be spent on …
Finding security vulnerabilities! This is where you start looking for loopholes in computer systems - both your own and others. Once you have discovered these loopholes, you’ll then have to figure out how to “patch” these holes up. In the professional world, companies often conduct security assessments to test the strength of their security network and to plug any gaps that they might find.

4. The fun thing about DISM is …
You’ll get to play the role of cyber cop! By playing detective, you’ll enter a cyber crime situation to find out how and why the crime could have happened. Once you have found the answers, you will then be able to advise people on how to prevent similar situations from happening.

5. To do well in this profession, you must be able to…
Work in a group and under stress! You will often be working in a team to stop cybercrime, so your ability to communicate with your teammates could determine the success or failure of the mission. Also, cybercrimes must be stopped quickly. It is therefore important that you work quickly and not lose focus!

Choosing an Infocomm Security Diploma Course

Diploma Course
Studying for an IT security-related diploma is a significant investment of your time, money and resources. It is better to understand the value that you would be able to generate with the course. A common concern seen among students is the choice between Infocomm Security Management versus  IT security centric (network security or forensics focused) diploma courses. There is no one fit solution for all students. You have to consider various factors before selecting one over the other including their track records.

The background of a student plays the most important role in choosing the diploma course. For example, students with interests and strong foundation in networking would naturally choose network security related diploma course. But many students who just completed their GCE “O” level may not have yet to realise their area of interest and may not be able to decide on which course to choose. For those students who are interested in IT security, it is advisable to build their foundations before they move on to specialise in a specific IT security field.

Holistic Education
SP's holistic education equips students with a total skill set, consisting of technical skills, knowledge skills and soft skills. This is done through our unique scenario-based training in DISM which will develop critical thinking skills of students and help them to become a life-long learner. The general education (GenEd) emphasises the cultivation of life-skills such as teamwork, resilience, problem-solving and decision-making.

Broad-based Curriculum
The Curriculum plays a major role in the learning process. DISM focuses on three main skill sets: Offensive, Defensive and Investigative. The first year include the general curriculum where students establish the fundamentals of information technology that includes computer architecture and operating system, networking fundamentals, linux administration, etc.

The second year has more security related modules such as Ethical Hacking and Defences, Applied Cryptography, Computer Forensics, Programming using Perl and C, etc. Third year is the most crucial year when you put all the skills and knowledge together to do your final year project plus some modules. You also choose your specialisation: either in Security Incident Management or Forensics and Investigation.

Career Goals
The essays and Interviews would have forced you to think about your career goals in detail. When you are being asked about your career aspiration, you would be expected to think of something related to your long-term and short-term career goals, as well as objectives, based on your career path planning. It is very important for one to plan ahead. If you choose a diploma course that is too specific (such as network security or forensics centric) at the early stage, you have to consider the job prospects and opportunities. In other words, your choice of jobs will be limited.

In Singapore, almost all IT security related jobs require the practitioners to be multi-skilled, that is, the ability to perform multiple IT security related tasks in a single job. So it means that broad-based training gives you the competitive edge you need to secure a job.

So, which course? 
Consider your interest, your academic strengths, your desired career, and the diploma course that would help you reach your career goals.

Choose Diploma in Infocomm Security Management (DISM) S54.

Advancing the fight against cyber threats @ Govware 2014 - hometeam.sg

23 Sep 2014. GovernmentWare 2014 brought a diversity of innovations designed to combat modern-day cyber threats and viruses.

A developing, growing range of cyber threats also means the continuous need to advance technology. This year’s GovernmentWare (Govware) showcases up-to-date innovations of major private companies as well as schools that equip our devices to combat online threats.

Singapore Polytechnic (SP) produced three creations, one of which is a malicious software (malware) detection website named “Open Bouncer”. Part of students Reuben Tan’s, Ngoh Guang Wei’s, Russell Chua’s and James Teoh’s Final Year Project (FYP) in collaboration with the University of Victoria, the Open Bouncer is an open platform to detect Android malware.

Cyber Conquest @ Govware 2014

On 23rd September, the first day of Governmentware 2014 saw youth participants competing in scenario-based challenges that tested their proficiency in IT security at the 5th Singapore Cyber Conquest.
For this year's Govware Singapore Cyber Conquest event, the Ministry of Home Affairs has partnered with Boeing, root9B, HP, and Ixia - an intense capture the flag competition that will challenge the team to think more like an attacker and improve the defensive skills.


We hope our DISM students had a good time being exposed to the competition being part of a red-team operational unit tasked with assessing the overall security posture of the opnet.com network to uncover target vulnerabilities, and gain access to the systems where applicable.

GovernmentWare 2014

On 23 September 2014, participants from the public and private sectors convened at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre for the 23rd GovernmentWare infocomm security seminar and exhibition to learn about the latest challenges in IT security.

The Guest-Of-Honour was Mr. Masagos Zulkifli, Senior Minister of State for Home Affairs and Foreign Affairs.

In his opening speech, he indicated the complexity of having the complete visibility or oversight of the environment. “We have to build robust information and intelligence sharing channels which we can tap on to put in place effective early warning systems. Such systems will enable us to better prepare against cyber attacks.”

He also mentioned how government to work with private, education sectors to fight cyber threats. "For example, in January this year, KPMG set up a Cyber Security Centre in partnership with the Infocomm Development Authority and Singapore Polytechnic. The Centre brings together companies, institutes of higher learning and security technology vendors to build capabilities and drive innovation in cyber security."

Singapore must always give our people full opportunities to achieve their potential. Our pioneers showed that we can do anything, provided we set our minds to it. And we must build on their legacy and continue to give every Singaporean the confidence to shoot for the stars. Education is an important part of this and that is why every year, I speak on different aspects of education and this year, I will focus on ITE (Institute of Technical Education) and Poly(technic) students. Our ITEs and Polys are world-class. Foreign visitors are amazed by the facilities, better than many universities. Investors are impressed by the quality of the graduates – well-trained, can-do, productive. And our students themselves are great examples of resolve, strength and character.......

Or take William Tay. William lost his hearing to illness at four. He enrolled in ITE College Central here. He joined the Photography Club and the Deaf Dragons, which is a dragon boat racing team and he graduated last year with a NITEC in Info-Communications Technology with a perfect Grade Point Average (GPA) and won the Rotary-ITE Student Excellence Award. Welcome, William. Now, he is in the Poly, studying for a Diploma in Infocomm Security Management and benefiting from the Special Needs Education Fund, and working with his lecturers to come back to his alma mater to start a sign language Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) club here in ITE College Central.

So, we have done well by our students. But our students, having done well, naturally hope to climb even higher. And I give you an example of how they feel in this striking art work entitled “Aspirations” which has been put up by ITE students in their art show and if you go outside later, you will see it on the wall somewhere outside. And it shows their desire to improve themselves to reach the top and if you look carefully, you will see also it shows the right spirit because having reached the top, you reach down and help the next person to make it too.

ITE Student William Tay now pursuing DISM at the Singapore Polytechnic: 2014 National Day Rally

SINGAPORE: In his National Day Rally Speech on Sunday (Aug 17), Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said Singapore must build on the pioneers' legacy.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the 2014 National Day Rally.
He said that education is an important part in ensuring that Singaporeans have the opportunities to achieve their potential. He cited the examples of two students who showed resolve, strength and character in overcoming challenges.

One of the two examples that Mr Lee mentioned is ITE graduate William Tay. Mr Lee said Tay's hearing loss did not stop him from excelling in life. He graduated with a perfect score last year and is also part of a dragon boat team of hearing impaired people.

William Tay, student of DISM
Tay hopes to give back to the society - he is working with his lecturers to start a Sign Language CCA Club in ITE. He is now pursuing a Diploma in Infocomm Security Management at the Singapore Polytechnic.

Prime Minister Lee said: "We have done well by our students; but our students, having done well, naturally hope to climb even higher. They are right to aim high. We want to help them create a brighter future for themselves, by many routes - not just the academic route, but also alternatively by getting good jobs, mastering deep skills, performing well and then getting relevant qualifications along the way, as they work, as they advance in their careers.

DISM ITSP Showcase 2014

The DISM ITSP Showcase Day (Semester 1) was held on Wednesday, 6 Aug 2014 at Cyber Wargame Centre. There was a total of 6 groups showcasing their final year projects. We saw many of the DISM year-1 and year-2 students turn-up to view their seniors' works. Many lecturers from DMIT also were present to view the projects.

There were many interesting projects and these included Smart keyboard, Openbouncer, Search-based Malware Analysis projects, just to name a few.

We are quite sure that these projects have great potential to end up in a follow-up project for the subsequent groups of students who are doing the final year project in next semester.

Keep up the good work!!!

Failing Forward Student Workshop Run #2

The first session of the Failing Forward Student Workshop Run #2 was conducted on Wednesday afternoon, 23 July 2014 at the SPACE Cube @ The Agency. We saw students coming from the 3 schools in BIH cluster came together to learn about the topic of resiliency.

These students started the programme by making a paper plane. This was an interesting exercise for the students to kick-start the programme. In a group of two, the students needed to make a paper plane using one quarter of an A4 size paper. The process required the students to work very closely and attempt to fly the paper plane with a distance of greater than 3 metres. It seemed easy but not all students succeeded with one single attempt but multiple attempts. The morale of the story was to encourage the students to keep trying till they succeed, i.e., with perseverance.

It's your turn to fold the paper plane.
Please show me how to do it!
Let me try flying the plane...
Even when I am sitting, my paper plane can fly....
Let it fly... up.. up.. and.. away........
It's my turn now..
Me too... let it go...
 Like those students in the first run of the programme, they were also required to balance an egg with end. Students were anxious to try on the balancing act but struggle very hard to make it with a success.
I told you I can do it, didn't I.
We are trying....
One of the workshop facilitator,
Mr Adrian Aw Yong from School of Business.
Steady lah!!!
Students participated in the programme had learnt about the concept of failing forward. We hope the programme will the students to develop a positive attitude and proactive view (“dare to try” mindset) to foster resilient lifelong learning.
Differentiating Fact of Life vs Problem.
