FireEye plans to provide training to Singapore cyber security professionals as part of a new cyber security academy. The company plans to offer courses in topics such as incident response and malware analysis. The academy is an initiative of the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore and was announced by Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security Teo Chee Hean in his remarks at Singapore International Cyber Week.
“FireEye has trained incident responders and malware analysts at some of the most prestigious government agencies and businesses around the world, and we are proud to build the capabilities of Singapore’s cyber security professionals who serve on the front lines and help protect Singapore and its critical information infrastructure from attackers. Around the world, the race is on to address the shortage of cyber security expertise, and Singapore’s efforts in this area will help cement its strategic leadership in cyber security in the region,” said FireEye Chief Executive Officer Mr Kevin Mandia.
