Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS), with the support of the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), will establish a new industrial cybersecurity center of excellence (COE) for Asia Pacific in Singapore. The COE will feature a state-of-the-art cybersecurity research and development lab, an advanced training facility and a security operations center that provides managed security services.
The new facility in Singapore, which is the first for Asia Pacific, is a further expansion of Honeywell’s global network of innovation centers. The lab will be used for proprietary research and development of new cybersecurity technologies and products, hands-on training and certifications, and testing and validation of industrial cybersecurity solutions, according to HPS. It will reportedly enable rapid development and introduction of innovative cybersecurity solutions to the regional and global markets.
The facility will also deliver managed industrial cybersecurity services to help users reduce the risk of security breaches and proactively improve their security posture. Managed services include continuous security and performance monitoring and alerting, security asset management and incident response.
The COE will be located at Honeywell’s office in Singapore’s Changi Business Park and is expected to open by the end of 2017. In addition, Honeywell is opening a similar facility in Dubai this year. Honeywell’s first cybersecurity lab is based in Atlanta.
