Public and private organizations across the U.S. realize that a well-trained and equipped cyber workforce is the best defense against evolving cyber threats. The U.S. is increasingly dependent on networks and technology and international allies and partners also are following suit.

To help international customers address the cybersecurity threat in the Asia-Pacific region, Boeing announced plans to open a Cyber Analytics Center in Singapore – an international endeavor for the company that could be the beginning of similar U.S. government and industry efforts to enhance cyber defenses around the world.  

The Cyber Analytics Center will be a regional hub for information sharing, enabling Asia-Pacific customers to share data on specific threats, implement mitigation strategies, and enhance regional cybersecurity awareness. The ability to share timely and actionable information among international customers is a key feature of the facility, which will serve as a local center where cybersecurity professionals can train and work together to identify and mitigate cybersecurity threats.  

The center leverages information technology to provide customers with the latest advances and underscores Boeing’s commitment to international partners in Singapore and Southeast Asia, as the U.S. continues to rebalance its national security priorities and resources to the Asia-Pacific.  

Throughout the month of October, the U.S. government is raising awareness about cybersecurity during National Cyber Security Awareness Month , which is coordinated and led by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Department of Homeland Security. Boeing has participated in the campaign since its inception, reaching customers and employees nationwide. This marks the 11th year of the campaign, and the first year Boeing is participating as an official champion.
