As we all know that there has been an increased focus on Cyber over the last decade.
Governments around the world are developing cybersecurity strategies, guidelines, regulations
and national standards. In addition to protecting their own ICT, governments are also focusing
on protecting critical infrastructure, and in some cases digital services, in their countries.
Cyber is a complex industry, not only because of the technology and geopolitical implications,
but also because it’s become two-pronged: a mission–to protect security from a geopolitical
perspective—and a market—to create jobs and construct educational curricula.
Harmonization in approaches and policies is important as it is evident that a fragmented,
compliance-driven approach might be counterproductive and negatively impact security by
diverting security resources to compliance functions. It is therefore pertinent to form
partnerships with all sectors to determine which approaches will work best and to leverage
existing good practices from around the world to help us define a comprehensive set of basic
security activities that aim at minimizing cybersecurity risks.
The Centre for Research, Advisory and Technology (CREATE) in partnership with Microsoft
Malaysia will be bringing together a small group of thought leaders in the industry and
practitioners to discuss cybersecurity challenges, solution development, advancement of cyberrelated
business innovation and growth, programs, policies, education for Malaysia and the
region within the next 30 years and beyond.
This TN50 Policy Roundtable Discussion on Cyber Security is dedicated to create connections
and building relations among current policy makers, cyber professionals, businesses and
fostering the development of the next generation of cyber thought leaders.
