Security Industry Institute

The Security Industry Institute (SII) was set up in September 2007 to offer nationally recognised and comprehensive professional security training and quality job placements for security personnel.

Jointly established by Temasek Polytechnic (TP) and now-defunct Singapore Workforce Development Agency (currently known as SkillsFuture Singapore), SII aims to enhance the security industry’s professional and operating standards and employability of the workforce through various skills upgrading initiatives.

  • More security agencies have started to adopt emerging technologies (such as drones, robots and “smart cameras”) to complement the security officers’ job. However, they do not often adequately safeguard their systems from hackers or against cybersecurity/cyberterrorism. This course will equip you to have an awareness, assess and manage cyber risks.
