Dynamic Cyber Security Systems Help To Counter Criminal Threats In The Digital Economy

UUM ONLINE: Cyberjaya - In the era of the rise of digital economy, the cyber security defence system should be more sophisticated and dynamic in dealing with any onslaught of cyber- crime threats.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dato' Seri Dr. Mohamed Mustafa Ishak, said that cyber security issues had become a matter for concern at the level of policymakers and regulators.

He said that security could be divided into two forms, namely, the 'traditional' (military) and the 'non-traditional' (involving the roles of economic power, politics and society), but that, now, security defence could be seen to be more inclined towards the ‘non-traditional’ variant.

According to him, with the increasing level of sophistication in technology, humans had veered towards communicating with each other mainly by way of the mobile phone, aided by the facility of the Internet, thus exposing themselves to cyber security threats.

"Various undertakings have been ventured into especially in the context of digital economy where the extent of the traffic in electronic transactions continues to grow with the increase in the involvement of many, as well as in the variety of activities, in the ecosystem of the country's digital economy.

"If not dealt with appropriately, the situation has the potential to create a variety of risks. Hence, a relevant framework policy should be introduced towards the achievement of a trusted business model in Malaysia. In fact, education also has an important role to play in providing early exposure to cyber threats," he said at the 2nd Malaysian Internet Governance Forum (MYIGF) 2017 at the MCMC Auditorium, yesterday morning.

At MYIGF 2017, organised by the School of Computing, UUM, in collaboration with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), Dato' Mohd Ali Hanafiah Mohd Yunus, the Chief Officer of the Communications and Digital Ecosystem Sector, MCMC, who represented the Chairman of the MCMC, also delivered his address.
