Building Malaysia's Cyber Security Defense Foundations

PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia, Since 2012, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) in collaboration with the SANS Institute has implemented a series of training sessions for defenders of Malaysia's Critical National Information Infrastructure (CNII) and government networks to ensure the protection of its national cyber space. Specific areas covered in the previous programme have included incident handling, penetration testing, network security, intrusion analysis, system administration, and IT security audit.

On 17-18 September, thirty security professionals attending a two-day session were provided a high-level understanding of security controls to ensure they had the cutting-edge knowledge and techniques necessary to defend critical networks. SANS SEC 440: 20 Critical Security Controls: Planning, Implementing and Auditing course provides participants with a framework to master proven techniques and tools needed to implement and audit the 20 most critical security controls through effective and cost-effective methods. These 20 controls were selected and defined by leading security experts as the highest priority list in ensuring effective and resilient perimeter defenses, and have been rapidly adopted by leading organisations in the private and governmental sectors internationally.

World-class Infosec training in Asia continues 21 October – 2 November with SANS October Singapore. This event offers five hands-on immersion style courses including auditing, forensics, penetration testing, and network security. Featured is the brand new SEC 642: Advanced Web App Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking, also available by Simulcast for those unable to travel to Singapore.
