Israel Aerospace Industries’ ELTA’s Singaporean Cyber Subsidiary, Custodio Technologies, together with Singapore’s Institute of Technology and in collaboration with the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA) and the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), have been awarded a project as part of Singapore’s National Cybersecurity R&D Programme.
The two-year project, named “SLADE: Smart Learning Analytics for Digital crime”, aims to research, design, develop and deploy a smart platform for the analysis, learning and investigation of digital crimes, helping investigators overcome the challenges of modern cybercrime investigation and digital evidence analysis.
The project will leverage on Custodio Technologies’, locally developed cyber analysis platform – CyVestiGO. The platform aids cyber operators and analysts to reduce the time and efforts needed to investigate cyber-security incidents and identify the DNA of Advance Persistent Threats (APTs).
CyVestiGo is also an integral part of Custodio’s parent company’s, Israel Aerospace Industries – IAI, global offering of national level Cyber-security centers and is being deployed in IAI’s projects around the world.
Director of Research and Development in Custodio Technologies Mr Alvin Cheng, said: “Custodio is honored to be awarded with this unique project. We are excited to harness our Cyber incident response knowledge and locally developed technology, together with our partners and collaborators in SIT, DSTA and MHA, to tackle the challenges of digital and cybercrime investigations. Our goal is to help Law Enforcement Agencies around the word to effectively combat cybercrime and successfully prosecute those who choose to use technology against us and our communities.”
The recent Deloitte Cyber Smart Index survey commissioned by VMware lauded Singapore’s cybersecurity readiness and noted that the Southeast Asian island state faced the highest cybersecurity risks in the Asia-Pacific.
The survey added that Singapore is the most prepared economy on its Cyber Smart Index when it comes to cyber exposure and preparedness in the APAC region, with proper legal and organizational awareness.
