The latest security intelligence report found that attacks on accounts in the cloud have tripled globally as more organisations move their data to the cloud.

The story behind Malaysia's 'alarming' growth

Dr Amirudin presented some of CyberSecurity Malaysia's take on the factors behind the rising encounter rate.

"A limitless cyberspace, zero boundaries and eroding national borders are just some of the drivers behind the increase of cyber threats," he said. "Today, cyber security concerns represent one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation."

"The findings of Microsoft's report underscores this challenge," Dr Amirudin said. "This report's valuable insights will helps us better manage these threats."

Dr Dzahar's comments included a positive note: "Driven by the proliferation of endpoints and the ubiquitous computing power of the cloud, the opportunity for digital transformation to make broad and profound impacts on our society has never been greater."

"However, for digitalisation to reach its fullest potential, users must first trust the technology they use," he pointed out. "In today's digital age, security cannot be an afterthought. It must be 'built-in', all-inclusive and intelligent."

"By making security a top priority, we can build greater trust in technology and enable digital transformation to reach its fullest potential and fulfil its grandest ambitions," said Dr Dzahar. "Microsoft is committed to helping our customers and partners build that trust and the first step is to help them understand the multitude of cyber threats out there so that they can implement more effective ways to manage and neutralize these risks."
