Dear Members

ASIS International (Singapore Chapter) will be organizing the second educational field visit and networking dinner of 2017 to the Singapore Turf Club on 30 June 2017 (Friday).

The Singapore Turf Club (STC) was founded in 1842 as the Singapore Sporting Club, being the oldest existing and only horse racing club in Singapore. It was relocated to its present location at the Singapore Racecourse at Kranji in 1999. It is now one of the premier racecourses in the world that not only provides world-class quality horse racing while maintaining the highest level of integrity in wagering, but also an efficient, effective and socially responsible organization.

Do join us to understand their security operations, investigation and intelligence gathering processes, challenges faced by the security team, and be provided a rare opportunity to visit the back of house areas: the Security Command Centre and up close with the race horses. Do not miss this great opportunity to learn and network from one another in this educational field visit.

Do stay behind for our Q2 networking dinner, also at the Singapore Turf Club, where you can enjoy a sumptuous buffet with a great view of the racecourse and the live horse racing sessions. In addition, we have lined up a presentation on leadership by an established and well-known executive coach cum consultant, and also a presentation on the usage of Twitter from a security perspective by the Regional Security Manager from Twitter. The finale would be a guided tour of the Parade Ring by STC staff where members would be able to view the race horses in close proximity, snap photos of the race horses and experience the live horse racing at the Grandstand.

ASIS INTERNATIONAL (SINGAPORE CHAPTER)’S FIRST QUARTER & LUNAR NEW YEAR NETWORKING DINNER


ASIS International (Singapore Chapter) held its 2017 First Quarter cum Lunar New Year Networking Dinner on 10 Feb 17 at the Jin Xi Lou Chinese Restaurant located at 29 Carpenter Street.  About  45 local chapter members and 11 invited guests from key government agencies and MNCs were treated to an 8-course Chinese banquet dinner, including “Lo Hei”, a traditional must-have raw fish dish during lunar new year celebrations.

Newly elected Chapter Chairman Dex Yuen, CPP, welcomed all guests and shared his vision for the Chapter, inspired by the book "Built to Last - Successful Habits of Visionary Companies" by Jim Collins and Jerry I. Porras.  In between dinner, members were treated to a series of lucky draws for responding to a members’ survey in Dec 16 and for early renewal of their membership.  Prizes included shopping vouchers as well as a book “A Handbook On Terrorism – Asia Pacific” written by Rohan Gunaratna, Professor of Security Studies at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Nanyang Technology University, who is also Head of International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research, Singapore.

In line with ASIS International’s focus of raising the profile of the security practice through education, an insightful presentation on “A Fast-Evolving Security Threat Landscape Fuelled By Technology Adverse Risks Driven by The Power Of Technology” was delivered by Stanley Aloysius, Director for Asia Pacific Safety & Security at PayPal. A key takeaway from his presentation was the need to seriously consider encrypting one’s mobile communication devices, since many people today regularly transact payments from their mobile devices.

A presentation was also delivered on the ASIS International Mentorship Program, by Leonard Sng, CPP, Chapter Mentorship Program Chairperson, who highlighted the importance of succession planning in the security industry.  Besides recognizing potential security industry leaders, grooming them is key to ensuring continuity.  Leonard shared that ASIS International takes this very seriously and has developed protocols to administer the program, which will be officially launched in end Feb 17.
