Working at ISD

Find out what our officers have to say about working in ISD

Security Education gives me a unique balance of different kinds of work. As part of my day-to-day work, I not only conduct research and develop content, I also have regular opportunities to be an ambassador of ISD, engaging members of the public and sensitising them to threats to Singapore’s internal security. I particularly enjoy the creative aspect of my work – for instance, where I get to come up with ideas about how to better reach out to the public.
“Harjit”, Security Officer
I was involved in a case just a few months into my job and got my first taste of investigative work. I found it exhilarating to piece together information from different sources to understand the case. Through this experience, I also had the chance to work closely with officers from different divisions to move investigations forward. I felt tremendously proud to be part of the team.

We are ordinary people doing work in an extraordinary organisation. The fact that I am with ISD is a source of pride.

One of the mission-critical needs for security-intelligence agencies today is to make sense of the volatile operating environment from a technological perspective. Our team of dedicated professions is constantly riding the technological wave to ensure that ISD is able to fulfil its mission of safeguarding Singapore’s security and sovereignty.

The work of an analyst is like solving a jigsaw puzzle, with information derived from a variety of sources. The completed puzzle is converted into useful intelligence for managing the security threats that Singapore faces.
