In the event of cyber security incident, our experienced cyber security team had implemented proper risk assessment procedures to navigate such problems. Businesses are still positive and are still looking for opportunities during this downturn.
As the co-organiser of Sea Asia 2017, Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF) is steered by the primary mission to promote and develop Singapore as an International Maritime Centre. One of their key focus is on developing young talents for the maritime manpower pool in Singapore. In a bid to profile the maritime industry and to attract more young talents to join the maritime sector every Sea Asia exhibition, SMF has organised the Sea Asia Youth Tour for students to gain a better understanding and appreciation for the maritime sector.
As one of the leading names in the maritime industry, BH Global Corporation Ltd was invited to participate in the Sea Asia Youth Tour to share with the students your corporate profile, your business operations, and internship and career opportunities. On the 27th April, last day of SEA ASIA 2017, approx. 70 students from the two institutions: Ngee Ann Polytechnic and ITE College Central that are currently taking up Marine and Offshore Technology and Marine Engineering visited our booth. We shared with them on our latest updates in our e-commerce platform, Cyber and Surveillance Security solutions.
Through this guided tour, the students were exposed to the wide spectrum of services within the BH Global Group. It was a good form of Corporate Social Responsibility by educating students and influencing them positively to join the Maritime Industry.
