Message from Organiser
The world today is more digitalised than before. This increased digital interconnectedness - while helping us to ride through the pandemic - has also broadened our exposure to greater cybersecurity risks. With the disruption wrought by Covid-19 over the past three years impacting lives and livelihoods, it is apt that the theme for GovWare 2022 is “Fostering a Safe and Sustainable Cyberspace Amidst Disruption”.
GovWare 2022, as part of the Singapore International Cyber Week unites the region’s most robust cyber community – symbolising the next evolution of cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions to enhance our collective defences into a unified approach, address real-world cyber threats and identify salient opportunities. Read the full message from Ian Monteiro, Executive Director of Image Engine, the Organiser of GovWare 2022.

  • "GovWare has been an important element of the Singapore International Cyber Week (SICW) since 2016. The digital-first world we live in today is increasingly exposed to new and emerging technologies. While we welcome the advantages brought about by technology, we need to take heed of the challenges in the cyber domain, marked by increasingly sophisticated cyber threats. We are heartened that GovWare continues to foster crucial conversations among stakeholders to address these challenges and pursue innovations to bring everyone forward in our digitalisation journey."
    Mr Dan Yock Hau
    Assistant Chief Executive, Cyber Security Agency of Singapore
  • "Everyone knows it’s never a walk in the park to stay ahead of the cyber trends or attackers which underpins the importance of GovWare as a regional platform to enable the brightest talents in the cyber security community to connect and exchange ideas. The opportunity to engage meaningfully, innovate and learn from the industry’s best aligns closely with how Mandiant operates as a trusted partner to security-conscious organisations. Backed by a powerful combination of frontline experts and global intelligence network, we are relentless in our mission to make every organisation secure from cyber threats and be confident in their readiness."
    Mr Steve Ledzian
    Chief Technology Officer, Asia Pacific and Japan, Mandiant
  • "From an audience profile standpoint, [GovWare] is fantastic because over the years, we've seen it progress from public sector to local, and today it's purely regional. It really goes hand in hand with Ensign's expansion strategy because being Asia's largest cybersecurity services firm, we want to be able to reach an audience profile that is very diverse across both private and public sectors. GovWare is a platform that allows us to achieve that."
    Ms Sherin Lee
    Vice President, APAC Marketing, Brand & Communications, Ensign InfoSecurity
  • “GovWare has already established itself as a [reputed] and trusted platform for collaboration, information exchange and partnership. I'm most glad to come here to meet all my friends whom I've not met for the last two years to exchange information and to gain knowledge from GovWare.”
    Ms Tham Mei Leng
    Ministry Chief Information Security Officer, Government Technology Agency
  • “We’re honoured to be able to partner with GovWare 2022 to hold CLOUDSEC @GovWare 2022, where business leaders across the ecosystem come together to discuss upcoming strategic technology trends in cloud, security, and digital transformation. This partnership is a representation of CLOUDSEC’s vision to not just ride the technological wave, but to pave the way forward for the next generation of the cloud ecosystem.”

It is a powerful aggregation centre in that sense, and I think that is where the value is in being a part of GovWare. We have a very sizeable number of CIO, CISO, CTO and CDO level personas who are already at GovWare."
    Mr Tommy Foo
    APAC Marketing Senior Director, Menlo Security
