- Cyber-attacks continue to pose major risks to organisations
- Emphasises the need for a ‘beyond awareness’ programme
ACCOUNTING and business advisory firm Baker Tilly (Malaysia) said it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with SysArmy Sdn Bhd to launch integrated cybersecurity solutions aimed at helping Malaysian organisations in their early stages of cybercrime prevention.
The MoU sets the framework for embracing and implementing cybersecurity standards, and also emphasises the need for a ‘beyond awareness’ programme through training, education, and research, Baker Tilly said in a statement.
“Whether targeted at government entities or private corporations, cyber-attacks continue to pose major risks to organisations of all sizes and in all industries,” said Baker Tilly (Malaysia) partner Andrew Heng.
“By combining the topnotch security expertise and threats intelligence of SysArmy, with our industry-specific knowledge and deep experience in audit, tax and advisory, we are better positioned to advance our ability in helping our clients on their cybersecurity preparedness,” he added.
Established in 1978, Baker Tilly (Malaysia) is an independent member of Baker Tilly International and has its headquarters in Kuala Lumpur. SysArmy is a subsidiary of Systech Bhd, which is listed on the ACE Market of Bursa Malaysia.
“Cybercrime is rapidly evolving and it is no longer a matter of ‘will you become a victim of cybercrime’ but ‘when you will become a victim of cybercrime’,” said SysArmy chief executive officer Hon Fun Ping.
“We aim to further improve and enhance our existing capabilities in weathering the cyberthreats and attacks, while doing our utmost to promote the implementation and development of cybersecurity,” he added.
