GovWare Focus 2020: Partnerships for Resilience and Advancement

As the global community strives to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, new and salient challenges add to the current demands of cybersecurity and the programmes it powers. Access to critical industry insights, trends, and solutions is even more imperative than before.

The GovWare Focus Series was conceived to serve as the information resource and connectivity platform to help the community tackle these current challenges with collective intelligence and collaborations.

With the theme of “Partnerships for Resilience and Advancement”, the first GovWare Focus was a free-to-attend virtual conference and technology showcase, focused on professional and industry development aspects.

Supported by the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA), GovWare Focus was proud to be a part of Singapore International Cyber Week (SICW) 2020, which took place from 5 to 9 October.


  • GovWare Focus is bringing the latest and greatest thinking all together in one place. We need to create momentum. My expectation is that post-GovWare, this insight and thought leadership needs to make it to the boardrooms, the security operations centres and to the business units who can take all this and translate it into actionable transformation.
    RT Hon Sir John Key
    Former Prime Minister of New Zealand, Director, Palo Alto Networks
  • GovWare Focus promises to bring together thinking from across the community to develop understanding, shine a light on new perspectives and develop new relationships.
