Still recall the high profile SingHealth cyber attack in July 2018? What about the MINDEF data breach in February 2017? Today, cyber criminals have become increasingly sophisticated and organised in their efforts of gaining unauthorised access to cyber resources. Some of them do so for financial gain, others for the recognition, some even simply for the thrill. Regardless of the cyber criminal’s intent, the Singapore government is placing greater emphasis on Cyber Security in organisations, be it SMEs, or even large enterprises. All these are administered through stricter PDPA guidelines, where infringements could bring about heavy penalties between four to six figures.

Implementing a tailored Cyber Security strategy is the best way for businesses to secure their cyber resources, and play within the increasingly stricter guidelines on personal data protection. As they say in Cyber Security, “your security is only as strong as your weakest link”. A strong cyber security foundation in the entire organisation, is bound to not only allow organisations to avoid penalties, but also to bring about greater confidence from prospective customers.

As stated by the IMDA, Singapore has been seeing an increasing need for skilled programmers in the tech industry and will be lacking about 30,000 technology experts by 2020.


    Demand for Cyber Security specialists have grown over 5.5 times since 2013


    Cyber Security Analysts can earn up to $100,000 yearly in their mid-career


    Demand for security job positions will be growing rapidly in time to come

The instructors are highly knowledgeable to be able to bring across new concepts as well as to explain the practicality of the concepts in the workforce! The atmosphere was also very conducive with meals and drinks being offered. Their follow-up service is also impeccable as they continue to update previous classes regarding new happenings in the data science field. Overall, it was a blast and I'm glad to have signed up for it!

Hackwagon was a wonderful experience. Cybersecurity courses are not offered in my home country and I had only a brief understanding of it. Coming into the course, it was lovely to have approachable, professionally experienced teachers who were willing to guide you into the industry was great. The teaching style was fast paced, with lots of jumping off points to explore outside of class time depending on your background. They were flexible on the curriculum for me as well, because my time limitations as I was on a tourist visa. Please offer online options to Skype, I would take 102 and 103. Highly recommended!

The introductory course was extremely fulfilling. The instructors are well versed with knowledge in the aspects of cyber security. They are willing to go the extra mile to help students understand and grasp the concepts better even if one is from a different industry background with no prior IT experience. Instructors are also willing to act as a guide even after the course is done to help students achieve their goals and make it a reality with structured pathways that makes it feasible. I dare say, each one of them are truly inspiring individuals to look up to and they are dedicated as well as passionate about what they are doing and how hardworking they are. They really make learning fun and exciting again. Lessons were presented satisfactorily!
