BAE Systems, providing technology-led defence and security solutions, is partnering with Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) a research-intensive university, to develop next-generation cybersecurity solutions in an era of rising cyber attacks.

NTU is BAE Systems' first academic research partner in the cyber discipline outside of the United Kingdom.

The two-year, $2.5-million partnership will place strong emphasis on a number of important developing areas of cyber research, including data mining and processing unstructured complex data, machine learning information used in speech recognition and search engines, and threat detection and mitigation through innovative solutions.

The joint research projects also aim to nurture more cybersecurity specialists with professional skills in security and cyber resilience.

Professor Lam Khin Yong said, "This partnership will allow us to develop highly innovative cybersecurity solutions to counter the threats posed by cyberattacks. I am confident that the joint research efforts with BAE Systems will lead to the innovation of disruptive technologies to counter fast-emerging cyber security threats.

"It will leverage NTU's expertise in cybersecurity to conduct high quality research that is strategically important to the safety and well-being of governments, businesses, and individuals, in Singapore and beyond."

The defence technology company operates in more than 40 countries, help defend nations, companies and individuals against the worst online and physical threats, such as cyber attacks and financial crime.

Boye Vanell, general manager for Asia at BAE Systems, said, "As a global business hub playing such an important role in the Asia Pacific, Singapore is well-placed to be a leader in cyber research and in developing technology and capability that enables a secure and connected world."

The initial partnership is for two years and is expected to extend well beyond that.
