Singapore has opened a cybersecurity facility to support research efforts between academia and industry players and provide a testbed for product development. Located at the National University of Singapore (NUS), the S$8.4 million (US$5.93 million) site would provide a “realistic environment” for cybersecurity research and testing, according to a joint statement Tuesday by the university and Singapore’s National Research Foundation (NRF). It can simulate more than 1,000 computers to perform various tasks to create cybersecurity incidents, such as large-scale malicious cyber attacks. It also has a large database of malware that can be tapped for research and education purposes. These capabilities were expected to be further expanded three-fold by year-end.
