About ICE71: Singapore’s First Cybersecurity Start-up Hub

Cybersecurity refers to measures and techniques to protect the integrity of data, computing devices, and other systems from damage or theft and prevent the disruption of the functionality of these systems. These measures include encryption techniques, cyber-intelligence, and the development of security control mechanisms.

Reaping the full benefits of Singapore’s future digital economy

Cybersecurity is a critical concern in Singapore's digital landscape, with the increasing number of cybersecurity attacks and threats targeting businesses and individuals. As we move into an era of increasingly complicated cyber threats, it becomes crucial that we are equipped to address and tackle various cybersecurity challenges, and ensure that Critical Information Infrastructures (CIIs) are resilient to cyber-attacks. In doing so, we can reap the full benefits of our digital economy.

ICE71 is the region’s first cybersecurity start-up hub. It aims to strengthen Singapore’s cybersecurity ecosystem and mitigate the increasing cybersecurity risks by attracting new talent. The hub also supports young cybersecurity entrepreneurs and start-ups from all over the world through a range of programmes, and by providing them with market access and introducing them to corporate partners.
