Security as a business catalyst
CyberSecurity Malaysia's Dr Amirudin said the survey findings were in tune with the high level of interest shown in the annual Cyber Security Malaysia Awards, Conference & Exhibition [CSM-ACE].
"More than 300 industry, academic and security experts came together this year in what has now become a neutral bridge, organised by CyberSecurity Malaysia, to help strengthen the collaboration from all stakeholders in the security industry," he said.
"Frost & Sullivan's survey results are borne out in the country's objective to manage the cyber security challenge as 19.2 million digital citizens want to safely use the internet for business and social development while warding off two types of threat," said Dr Amirudin. "These are mainly from the technology side and cyber content-related threats such as hactivism and the misuse of social media."
