Although governments and thousands of companies have invested billions of dollars to address cybersecurity, no systems are truly safe. Cyber attacks are everywhere, and as the world becomes increasingly more connected, the risks grow. The goal of the Cybersecurity Team in developing this Impact Proposal is to create a world where emerging technologies can be used to develop integrated, automated, intelligent cybersecurity solutions that scan and protect a wide variety of networks, proactively identify system vulnerabilities, and automatically repair those vulnerabilities, resulting in safer connectivity for all.

 

“The cyber threats that we’re facing are numerous and gaining in complexity, and we haven’t yet committed the resources to mitigating it. XPRIZE can help change that.”

Team Sponsor

NRF Singapore sets the national direction for policies, plans, and strategies for research, innovation, and enterprise. The NRF aims to transform Singapore into a vibrant R&D hub that contributes to a knowledge-intensive, innovative, and entrepreneurial economy; it also wants to make Singapore a magnet for excellence in science and innovation.

Singapore is a networked country with an open economy that is dependent on its information infrastructure and key national critical infrastructures. The cyber threats and attacks against the government and enterprise networks are increasingly sophisticated and damaging. Cyber vulnerabilities could present themselves anywhere. The Cybersecurity XPRIZE will contribute to Singapore’s effort to develop solutions to automatically detect and stop attacks as well as to generate security patches for the vulnerabilities.

“I am passionate about technology and its ability to change our lives for the better. I want technology to reach people irrespective of their geographical or economic standing, and provide simple, effective solutions to our most complicated problems.

I bring to the table my analytical and project management skills and my extensive experience working in the technology industry. My business acumen and networking skills will also be of help to my team.

I am very excited to work with and learn from the bold innovators in such a prestigious and influential platform as the XPRIZE summit. I am enthusiastic about all the topics for this year’s summit. I expect it to be a life-changing experience for me.”

“I am driven by my desire to solve massive problems by breaking them into smaller, more manageable parts. I believe that big problems are solved when stakeholders at every level are engaged with making things better, and I also believe that many grand challenges can be solved in a way that is beneficial for all parties affected by that challenge.

I am passionate about building relationships with people who think differently than I do, because that diversity of approach leads to greater outcomes. Learning from, connecting with, and listening to other members of the team are the things I am most looking forward to. As a recent graduate of a master’s program in cybersecurity, I am excited to share and continue to build that skill set.”
