Developing Malaysia’s cyber incident response capability

Tech & Sec Weekly


We speak with Dr Atif Ahmad, Associate Professor and Deputy Director for the Academic Centre of Cyber Security Excellence at the University of Melbourne and Current Visiting Associate Professor at UKM who is helping to develop Malaysia’s cyber incident response capability.

The project is funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and supported by the National Cyber Security Agency of Malaysia (NACSA).

The collaboration with Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) will see a joint team of UoM-UKM researchers build a reference model. This will assess practical cyber incident responses in organisations.

The project aims to support the development of Malaysia’s cyber-resilience. This is an objective of Australia’s Comprehensive Strategic Partnership (CSP) with Malaysia.

Phase two will commence in May 2023 and involve three case studies. It will provide a benchmarking report for Malaysian organisations and NACSA. This report will compare the practices of Malaysian organisations against a leading Australasian financial organisation.

Up to 100 cybersecurity managers and executives across several critical infrastructure sectors will be trained on how to evaluate incident-response practices.

The project will produce a reference model to assess cyber incident response practices in Malaysian organisations.
