NEC exhibits innovative public safety solutions and technologies at GovernmentWare 2017

Providing cities with enhanced safety and security measures

Singapore, 14 September 2017 – NEC Asia Pacific today announced its participation as a Gold sponsor at the 26th GovernmentWare (GovWare) conference and showcase, held together with the Singapore International Cyber Week, to highlight a variety of solutions and technologies to safeguard citizens and enterprises from growing security threats. The event is held from 19-21 September 2017 at the Suntec International Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Cyber threats are getting more sophisticated and rising at an alarming rate globally, often incurring millions of dollars of recovery costs for governments and enterprises.
