HEAR FROM THE EXPERTS

Students who visited our Total Defence 2017 Special Exhibition were able to learn about three clear and present dangers that Singapore faces – specifically Cyber Threats, Pandemics and Terrorism – from our three experts below.

The students could view the clips where each expert expounded on the definition and the danger of each threat and how we can defend ourselves against it. They were then given the opportunity to pose questions to the Experts.
