Boeing will open its first Cyber Analytics Centre outside the US in Singapore to bring advanced cybersecurity capabilities and services to customers in the Asia-Pacific region.
The centre will help train and equip cybersecurity professionals, perform advanced analytics and serve as Boeing’s regional cybersecurity centre of excellence. Boeing will hire and train cybersecurity professionals in Singapore to staff the facility.
“Boeing is a leader in cybersecurity from the US, and we warmly welcome Boeing’s decision to establish the Cyber Analytics Centre in Singapore,” said Gian Yi-Hsen, director of the Singapore Economic Development Board’s Safety & Security Industry Programme Office. “This centre is a first for Boeing internationally and a significant addition to the cybersecurity industry in Singapore to meet the growing demands of the region.”
“We are taking our Singapore partnership to a new level with this Cyber Analytics Centre aimed at boosting cybersecurity in the city-state and beyond,” said Skip Boyce, president of Boeing Southeast Asia. “Boeing already has a strong business presence here, comprising commercial aircraft and defense procurement, aircraft maintenance and research and technology work.”
A key feature of the facility will be the ability for customers to share timely and actionable information. The centre will also provide a collaborative environment for security professionals to work with industry partners, customers and academia to solve complex, cybersecurity challenges.
