Singapore, 19 January 2023 – AETOS conducted a table-top exercise (TTX) and ground deployment exercise (GDX) with established institutes of higher learning, Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), to help validate and enhance their operational readiness in times of adversities and emergencies.
Tailored according to SIM and SUSS’s desired business continuity outcomes, these exercises aimed to identify and mitigate risks in both institutions’ contingency plans when dealing with security incidents, such as an adversarial breach and attack within the compound.

We are pleased to partner forward-thinking organisations like SIM and SUSS, who are proactive in testing out their multi-agency response, and strengthening their overall emergency preparedness against such attacks,” said Mr Vincent Soh, Vice President of Integrated Training.

Singapore, 31 October 2022 – Singapore's leading institution of higher learning, Temasek Polytechnic (TP), and leading unified security solutions provider, AETOS Holdings Pte Ltd (AETOS) combined forces to conduct a joint security training programme for Brunei Darussalam’s largest security company, Setia Protective Security Services (SPSS) Sdn Bhd – the first training collaboration of its kind for organisations outside of Singapore.
Peter Lam, Principal and CEO (PCEO) of TP and Alfred Fox, CEO of AETOS inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Monday, 31 October at Temasek Polytechnic, to cement the partnership between AETOS and Temasek Polytechnic - Security Industry Institute (SII). This is the first public-private sector partnership that offers advanced security training programmes that would enhance upskilling opportunities of security personnel in this sector, as well as those beyond Singapore. The collaboration will also see TP and AETOS contributing in the areas of course development, professional training and job placements for the security industry.
The collaboration was kick-started with SPSS with a 5-day training programme comprising security search procedures, technology, digitalisation and Cash-in-Transit operations. SPSS is the largest security agency, with a 1,600 strong workforce and the only agency authorised to provide security services for Government ministries, VVIP locations, embassies and other National Key Points (NKP) in Brunei Darussalam.
The partnership forged will also allow TP and AETOS to explore further collaborations by jointly curating training programmes, staff exchange initiatives as well as job placement schemes to develop customised courses on security technology and other emerging areas such as the convergence of physical and cyber security that will allow full-time polytechnic and ITE graduates to gain a head start in this sector.
Commenting on the newly forged partnership, Mr Peter Lam, Principal & CEO of TP said, “We are very excited to grow this collaboration by leveraging on AETOS’s operational expertise and capabilities to bring our local brand of education and training overseas. By equipping companies like SPSS with the necessary skills and knowledge to enhance their security operations, we hope to enhance the competitiveness and productivity of the security sector while providing better employability outcomes for all the trainees.”
Mr Alfred Fox, CEO of AETOS said, “AETOS is committed to uplifting the security industry in multiple ways, including developing a sustainable pipeline of security professionals. By establishing an agile training ecosystem with industry partners like TP SII, we are well positioned to enable future-ready skills and exciting career pathways for this sector, and bring our benchmarked standards of excellence abroad.”
