SECURA Group Ltd's wholly-owned subsidiary, Red Sentry Pte Ltd, has entered into an agreement with the Singapore Business Federation (SBF) to raise companies' capabilities in cyber security through workshops, it said on Friday in a filing to the Singapore Exchange (SGX).
Themed as the Cybersecurity Capabilities Series, the workshops aim to help Singapore companies, especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), better understand the cyber security landscape and address cyber security threats more effectively.
There are three courses structured to cater to different levels within an organisation - staff, mid-level management and C-level executives.
The topics are designed for participants and companies not in the information technology sector or with no technical background, said Secura.
The quarterly-run series is part of SBF's role as the business continuity management focal point to encourage more Singapore companies to adopt ISO 27001 - Information Security Management System.
Paul Lim, chief executive of Secura, said the collaboration marks Secura's first move into cyber security training, which reflects its continued push to expand its suite of services and solutions in the cyber security space.
"We are working towards getting Red Sentry accredited by the Workforce Development Agency (WDA) as an approved training organisation," Mr Lim noted.
Secura launched its cyber security business in January 2015 and has achieved significant growth in the sales of cyber security-related products and professional services. The group is currently expanding its suite of cyber security services for enterprise customers in the business-to-business market in both Singapore and the region. It also intends to extend its cyber security services to the consumer market by 2017.
