Matching Session with SSAS for ACSA and SAS Members
With the authorities encouraging the security industry to embrace technology as an enabler to provide security services, ACSA and SAS got together and decided to serve as a matchmaker between members of ACSA and SAS with members of SSAS.
The inaugural match making session was held on 20 March 2018 at the NTUC Centre. About 80 members from ACSA and SAS responded to the session. The technology vendors were busy sharing with the visitors on the array of technological equipment that were available in the market. Many of the SAs were pleased with ACSA and SAS for mooting the matchmaking session. The session opened the horizons of the SAs who were not very familiar with the gadgets available in the marketplace.
Another session will be held soon.
