SP collaborates with Symantec to establish infocomm security lab and training opportunities for Diploma in Infocomm Security Management students.
The School of Media and Info-Communications Technology (SMIT) and Symantec Singapore recently re-affirmed their partnership by renewing the SMIT-Symantec Collaboration.
The Memorandum of Co-operation was signed between Mr Song Nay Hay, Director of the school, and Mr Darric Hor, General Manager of Symantec Singapore, on 21 November 2007 at the SMIT Infocomm Security Labs.
The one-year old partnership has made much progress and yielded a number of initiatives, such as the SP-Symantec Security Lab which was launched on the same day and the awarding of the first ever Symantec Scholarship.
Teh Qin Chuan, a second-year Diploma in Infocomm Security Management (DISM) student, received a full-fee paying scholarship for the entire three years of study at SP, based on his excellent academic performance.
At the ceremony, certificates were also given out to DISM staff and students that attended the Symantec Client Security, Anti-Virus and Anti-Spam course.
In his opening address, Mr Song thanked Symantec Singapore for their sponsorship to set up the security lab as well as for the scholarship, and he hoped that through this collaboration, more DISM students can be trained with the relevant skills to prevent, detect, respond and manage security threats in the globalised and interconnected world.
