Singapore is set to see in influx of fresh talent in the area of operational technology (OT) cybersecurity under a new government initiative aimed at mapping out the job roles, technical skills and core competencies required in the sector.

On 8 October, the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) launched its Operational Technology Cybersecurity Competency Framework (OTCCF), which is designed to provide a foundation upon which Singapore can attract and develop talent for the emerging OT cybersecurity sector in the country. 

Not only does the OTCCF map the job roles, technical skills and core competencies that are in need, it also captures the possible career pathways, showing the options for vertical and lateral progression.

Under the plan, OT and IT system owners can refer to the OT cybersecurity capabilities required to attract the right people, train them adequately and map out their career pathways.

Training providers, meanwhile, can refer to the technical competencies required by different job roles and be guided to develop best-in-class courses and certifications that cater to local training needs.
