    Episode 145: In Conversation, W Series Driver, Abbie Eaton

    Episode 145: In Conversation, W Series Driver, Abbie Eaton

    In this special edition of our In Conversation episodes, we are excited to bring you Abbie Eaton, racing driver in the W Series women's elite motorsport league. The W Series is a free-to-enter championship, launched in 2018, that provides equal opportunities for women and eliminates the financial barriers that have historically prevented them from progressing to the upper echelons of motorsport. W Series races appear in the racing calendar around the globe, including in Singapore this weekend. Abbie talked with our Executive Director, David Kelly about her driving journey, the obstacles she has faced including her back-breaking racing injury last October, and the success that comes with hard work and commitment.

    Born to a racing driver father but without a silver spoon in her mouth, Abbie grew up around motorsport. In 2018, she joined the cast of Amazon's The Grand Tour as a test driver. Initially a critic of the W Series, after seeing the debut season and witnessing how it supported the development of the drivers' careers, she converted and jumped back into the driver's seat.

    Ep 144: Everything you ever wanted to know - Cyber Security

    Cybersecurity is the protection of internet-connected systems such as hardware, software and data from cyberthreats. The practice is used by individuals and enterprises to protect against unauthorized access to data centers and other computerized systems.

    Richard Koh, Chief Technology & Security Officer, Microsoft Singapore, discussed with Daisy Radford of the ICT Committee how we can educate both individuals from a society and community perspective, but also at the organisational level for cybersecurity threats. Our guest shares how to strengthen the foundation with the people of Singapore to protect themselves from scammers and cyber criminals who are constantly adapting and growing just to retrieve private confidential data.
