Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and BAE Systems have signed a S$2.5 million partnership to jointly develop next-generation cybersecurity solutions in an era of rising cyber attacks.
BAE Systems provides some of the world’s most advanced, technology-led defence, aerospace and security solutions. NTU is BAE Systems’ first academic research partner in the cyber discipline outside of the United Kingdom.
The two-year collaboration will place strong emphasis on a number of important developing areas of cyber research, including data mining and processing unstructured complex data, machine learning information used in speech recognition and search engines, and threat detection and mitigation through innovative solutions.
The joint research projects also aim to nurture more cybersecurity specialists with professional skills in security and cyber resilience.
The $2.5 million partnership was signed in the United Kingdom by NTU’s Chief of Staff and Vice President for Research, Professor Lam Khin Yong and BAE Systems Managing Director of International Services and Solutions, Richard Moseley.
The initial partnership is for two years and is expected to extend well beyond that.
