Programme Overview

The Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) is proud to present the Singapore International Cyber Week (SICW) 2018, with the 27th GovernmentWare (GovWare) Conference & Exhibition from 18 to 20 September 2018 at Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre.

The theme for SICW 2018 is “Forging a Trusted and Open Cyberspace”, to reflect the importance of trust and openness in cyberspace, given the fast-evolving and complex cybersecurity landscape.

Increasing inter-connectivity, proliferation of Internet-of-Things and evolving Cyber technology in recent years continue to influence many facets of everyday life. Initiatives among various nations to develop smart economies and ecosystems are positive steps towards global digitalization. Key to the success and sustainability of these efforts nationally and globally would be the codifying of rules and norms of behaviour, built on the technology and infrastructure that can nurture growth.

The 27th edition of GovWare invites cyber professionals, policymakers and innovators to discuss key challenges in establishing a rules-based and norms-based cyberspace, and working with stakeholders from various domains to ensure international and regional cooperation, cyber ecosystem development and innovation. Your presence and sharing of insights and perspectives on leading challenges in the cybersecurity domain will provide a boost in securing the cyberspace.
