What are the current safety and security measures and the challenges faced in both the physical and cyber world? These were questions addressed at Toolbox Talk Series: Psychology in Crime and Cyber Crime & Security workshop, jointly presented by the SUSS School of Humanities and Behavioural Sciences (SHBS) and Career Development Office.
47 students from the Public Safety and Security programme attended the sessions and had the opportunity to explore key topics, get answers from industry experts, and seek out their own personal journey in safety and security.
The two-day workshop was held at SUSS on 14 and 15 December. On the first day, two speakers from Interpol and Singapore’s GovTech shared about the increasing difficulty of solving cybercrime and its prevalence, as well as how the Singapore government worked hand-in-hand with citizens to ensure the safety of cyber platforms.
On the second day, three speakers from the Home Team Behavioural Sciences Centre introduced the Modus Operandi of 21st century scammers in Singapore and students learnt about how they and their loved ones can avoid falling victim to such scams.
The event was organised by the PSS Interest Group, Pretty Sirius Stuff (PSS).
