Security Industry Digital Plan

last updated 16 April 2019

The Security Industry Digital Plan (IDP) works as a guide for local SMEs in the Security industry to digitalise their businesses, plug skills gaps and participate in national innovation initiatives.

SMEs in the Security industry can tap on pre-approved digital solutions to automate routine, manpower intensive security functions.

SMEs Go Digital

*Includes training under Skills-Future Series and Skills Framework.

The Security Industry Digital Plan is developed for local SME security agencies.

SMEs can refer to the Digital Roadmap to assess their digital readiness and identify opportunities for going digital and training to raise employees’ digital skills.

Basic Advisory & Consultancy

SMEs that wish to have a more comprehensive review of their business can approach the SME Centre business advisors for a free business diagnosis and advice on the relevant digital solutions. 

Specialist Advisory & Consultancy

SMEs that require specialist advice on more advanced digital solutions will be referred by the SME Centre business advisors to the SME Digital Tech Hub.

To ease SMEs’ adoption of digital technologies, IMDA has pre-approved digital solutions that are proven, robust and which meet SMEs’ business needs. 

For the list of pre-approved digital solutions supported under the Productivity Solutions Grant, visit: Tech Depot at SME Portal.

Through the IDP, SMEs can also participate in digital sector projects that are shaped jointly by IMDA and the industry leaders. Such projects serve to pilot new digital solutions or platforms that have the potential to scale and uplift whole sectors.

One of the first projects is the piloting of a roving security digital surveillance van by Concorde Security that will enable an SME security agency to provide night guarding of 30 buildings with only 3 security officers (instead of 30, at one per building) without compromising the ability of fast on-site response.

SMEs can engage the digital project management services under the SMEs Go Digital programme to help change their business processes, redesign jobs and better manage the implementation of digital technology for a more holistic and sustainable outcome.

The Singapore Manufacturing Federation has been appointed as the first operator, with support from the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), Enterprise Singapore, Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), and Workforce Singapore (WSG).
