​NTU Singapore and Ben-Gurion University ink partnership to combat advanced cyber threats​

Published on: 01-Feb-2017


NTU Chief of Staff and Vice-President (Research) Prof Lam Khin Yong and BGU Vice-President and Dean (Research & Development) Prof Dan Blumberg signed the joint research agreement at the CyberTech Conference in Tel Aviv, Israel, on Tuesday, 31 January 2017 (Wednesday, 1 February, Singapore time). Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was the event’s guest-of-honour.​

Led by the Cyber Security Research Centre at NTU, faculty and researchers from both universities will be involved. In developing new technologies to counter cyber threats, the two partners are inspired by the ability of the human body immune system to adapt to and fight ever-evolving bacteria and viruses.

Prof Lam Khin Yong said, “Through this partnership, NTU and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev will be able to develop innovative methods for combating one of the most complicated problems in cyber security – Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). This project will leverage on NTU’s strong hardware-based research expertise and BGU’s software-based core competences to combat this intractable problem.”​
