On 3 August 2015, SIM University (UniSIM) launched a toolkit to help companies make better use of analytics and protect themselves from cyber attacks. This project was in collaboration with Singapore Management University (SMU) and CPA Australia – one of the world's largest professional accounting bodies.The toolkit, entitled "Analytics and Cybersecurity: The shape of things to come", is a collection of essays by thought leaders in analytics and cybersecurity. It shares practical real-life experiences and case studies from key industry players such as DBS Bank, Deloitte, EY, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers.The toolkit is aimed at directors and senior management in multi-national corporations and small and medium-sized enterprises to equip them with industry-relevant insights into the most significant issues relating to analytics and cybersecurity, which impact companies' efficiency and the safety of their corporate data. This is of utmost importance as analytics and data are said to underpin Singapore's development towards a Smart Nation while cybersecurity has grabbed headlines in recent years with several high-profile cases locally and globally.Published by CPA Australia, the toolkit is edited by Dr Calvin Chan, Vice Dean of the School of Business at UniSIM; Dr Gary Pan, Associate Dean for Student Matters of the School of Accountancy at SMU; Dr Seow Poh Sun, Associate Dean for Teaching and Curriculum of the School of Accountancy at SMU; and Dr Lim Chu Yeong, Associate Professor of the School of Accountancy at SMU. UniSIM associates Dr Lee Yew Haur, Head of Business Analytics Programme; and Dr James Tan, Senior Lecturer of Business Analytics Programme, are also among the contributing authors.
