Boeing plans to open a cybersecurity analytics facility in Singapore, its first outside the United States, as part of efforts to make such capabilities and services accessible to customers in the Asia-Pacific region.
The new facility will hire and train cybersecurity professionals locally, carry out advanced analytics, and support the aviation company's regional cybersecurity center of excellence, Boeing said in a statement Monday. A spokesperson in Singapore told ZDNet the analytics center is scheduled to open next year and plans are underway to hire and train professionals in the region, but did not provide details on how many will be hired when asked. The new facility will be located at Boeing's existing office in the country.
"We will hire local Singaporean citizens to operate the new, secure center once it's fully operational. We will also support the center's ability to conduct open source cyber analytics for customers throughout the region. The exact numbers and details are still being finalized," the spokesperson said.
Noting that the Cyber Analytics Centre will aim to drive cybersecurity in Singapore, Boeing's Southeast Asia President Skip Boyce said in the statement: "Boeing already has a strong business presence here, comprising commercial airplane and defense procurement, aircraft maintenance, and research and technology work."
The new site will allow customers to share timely and actionable data to better respond to cybersecurity risks, and support a "collaborative environment" for professionals in the field to work with industry folks, researchers, as well as customers to address key challenges, the company said.
