Govt launches new digital plan to help smaller security agencies transform

Senior Manager Derek Chew – Interviewed by TODAY news on launch of Security Industry Digital Plan grants


Mr Derek Chew, senior manager at FormTeam Consultancy said the firm is thinking of tapping the grant to invest in new technologies.

The firm invested about S$80,000 last year in new technology solutions. Grants from the Inclusive Growth Programme, for instance, helped to offset about 50 to 60 per cent of the cost.

While the new digital plan and grant are helpful, Mr Chew said security agencies need customers’ buy-in for them to adopt more new technologies, and agencies themselves will need to find the right talent to help redesign the way manpower is allocated.
