DSCI aims to connect stakeholders in the government with academies and industry experts in order to establish collaboration. Cybercrime investigation and industry development is on their list of goals as well.
Vijay Thakur Singh, Singapore’s high commissioner, commented that cybersecurity is a global issue which requires the attention of all stakeholders. He believes that countries should unite in collaborative pursuit of this goal. He also added the thought leaders like DSCI play an essential role in bringing stakeholders together.
The Singapore chapter will establish a vital connection between India and Singapore, and provide a missing link to fill the data security skill gap. It will also explore niche opportunities by developing data security products.
Rama Vedashree, the CEO of DSCI, noted that the new chapter is crucial when it comes to bringing India and Singapore together in a combined effort to pursue the development of data security solutions. She added they are working with governments across the globe in order to present new data security solutions, and also addressing internet privacy, cross border data flow, and internet governance.
DSCI has established a network of over 4000 data security professionals in India alone. Currently, DSCI has 12 chapters operating in different cities. This is the first time for DSCI to expand into Singapore, and it is a huge stepping stone for the organisation.
