Singapore Cyber Security Jobs

Surprisingly enough, Singapore is actually an island nation which lies at the southernmost tip of continental Asia. When viewed on a map, Singapore looks like a piece of glass that was dropped and shattered into numerous pieces. The main island, commonly referred to as Singapore Island, is the largest of those pieces. Sixty much smaller pieces make up the rest of the country. Singapore is nicknamed “Red Dot,” in reference to its tiny size when viewed on world maps.

Singapore was occupied by Japan during WWII and eventually gained its independence from England in 1963. After somewhat rocky beginnings as a sovereign nation, Singapore underwent an economic growth spurt that has placed it in the elite group of  “Asian Tigers.”

Cyber Security Jobs in Singapore

Singapore is a standout within several major industries. It’s the world’s fourth leading financial center, the second largest casino gambling market, among the top three oil-refining centers, the world’s largest oil-rig producer, and a major hub for ship repair services. If all that isn’t enough, Singapore is rated as the easiest place in the world to do business!

Singapore is a major exporter of refined petroleum and integrated circuits and computers. Its largest companies are comprised of telecoms, banking institutions, as well as transportation and manufacturing concerns. Many of these companies began life as state-run enterprises.

Singapore Airlines is ranked as Asia’s most-admired company and is the world’s most-awarded airline. Singapore is a major international air hub and like its national airline, is also highly decorated. This has facilitated making tourism a major part of Singapore’s economy, with over 15 million tourists visiting the island nation each year. The country’s appeal to foreign visitors has also received a lift from the legalization of casino gambling in 2005 and the boom in medical tourism. Singapore actively promotes itself as a medical tourism hub and endeavors to serve at least one million foreign patients each year.

Singapore also prides itself as an education hub, with 20% of its students being foreigners. Since English is one of the four official languages in Singapore, seeking work as a teacher in the STEM disciplines is a career option worth considering if you’re from an English-speaking country and you have a strong background in IT.

Living and Working in Singapore

Singapore has a tropical rain forest climate and if you like to see the seasons change, then Singapore is probably going to disappoint. It’s pretty much a same weather, different day situation: unvarying temperature and pressure, high humidity, and plenty of rain. The rainy, monsoon season runs from November to January.

In order to keep pollution and congestion to a minimum, the government of Singapore has placed restrictions on the number of private cars permitted on the roads. A highly effective method of imposing these restrictions is to require car buyers to pay a hefty duty as well as put in a bid for a Singaporean Certificate of Entitlement, which allows the car to be on the road for 10 years. But no worries, there are many convenient and affordable ways for getting around Singapore ranging from buses, taxis, trains, to bicycles and even via foot power!

Singapore is also a very well-connected city – at least when it comes to getting online. Singaporean ISPs offer residential service plans of speeds up to 1 Gbps. It’s no coincidence that the availability of Gigabit Networks has served to increase exports as well as create 80,000 new jobs in 2006 alone.

When it comes to language, Singapore has broad coverage as well. There are four official languages: English, Malay, Mandarin Chinese, and Tamil. This is especially good news for those wishing to emigrate from English-speaking countries as English is the common language, and is the language of business, government, and the language of instruction in schools.

Unemployment in Singapore is the lowest among developed nations and has never exceed 4%. A number like that is certainly enough to make other developed countries such as the U.S. turn green with envy! Despite this, it should be noted that Singapore has imposed a cap on the number of foreign workers allowed to live and work in the country.

The Singaporean government is faced with the challenge of keeping immigration at a manageable level while also attracting foreign talent. The Ministry of Manpower (MoM) issues employment passes under three different categories segmented by salary. Your chances of receiving a Singapore employment pass increase greatly if you have an in-demand skill set such as one in the field of cyber security.
