NATIONAL CYBER SECURITY POLICY

KUALA LUMPUR: The Government plans to establish a National Cybersecurity policy to better secure the nation against threats, says Gobind Singh Deo (pic).
The Communications and Multimedia Minister said his ministry will be spearheading the policy in collaboration with the National Cybersecurity Agency and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission.
"With Malaysia's digital economy growing by leaps and bounds, it is inevitable that there will be unintended consequences.
"Threats like data breaches and theft, sabotage, intrusion, and cyber espionage can have adverse impacts on organisations and the state," he said.
One of the areas is to develop more local cybersecurity talents.
"Developing the right talent is a very important aspect of cybersecurity preparedness.
"It is crucial that we establish a sustainable model with the cooperation of various government agencies (along with) academic and private institutions," he said.
Gobind added that he will suggest amending laws to combat cyberbullying and cybercrimes.
"We could introduce new provisions in the Penal Code, for example, so that such crimes could be investigated by the police.
"But before we do all these, I am in the process of discussing it with the police to get their views," he said.
