Episode 100 – Intrepreneurship, SCADA systems and maritime supply chains
Summary: Ken Soh, CEO of Athena Dynamics Pte Ltd speaks about his journey into Intrepreneurship, shipping and maritime security frameworks, SCADA Systems and the inspiration sourced from Israel. As CIO of BH Global Corporation, Ken’s journey got underway when the company funded a study week in Israel and he returned to Singapore as an Intrepreneur, the CEO of Athene Dynamics and servicing BH Global Corporation’s supply chain customers. Ken effectively turned the IT department into a profit centre and software distributor. With consideration to shipping and maritime security trends and supply chain security, we then dive into two of the company’s software products: Sasa Software is a 9-layer, ultra-deep-scanning anti-malware and sanitisation (CDR) solution augmentable by uni-directional data diodes with Wintel based proxies; and ICS2, a SCADA monitoring platform that specialises in real-time behavioural analytics of OPC data passively extracted from control systems. Recorded at ICE71, Singapore on September 7, 2018. ICE71 ‘Innovation Cybersecurity Ecosystem at Block71’ is the region’s first cybersecurity entrepreneur hub. Founded by Singtel Innov8, the corporate venture capital unit of Singtel, and the National University of Singapore (NUS), through its entrepreneurial arm NUS Enterprise.
