The overall objective of this MoU is to establish a general framework for cooperation in the areas of the technology behind cryptocurrencies/Digital Assets and DAXes. 

This includes collaboration in research and development, joint solution development activities and conducting training and awareness programs related to cyber security, cryptocurrencies, and DAXes in Malaysia.

“Thus, the MoU between MX Global Sdn Bhd and CyberSecurity Malaysia is timely to establish and promote collaboration in cryptocurrencies and digital asset exchanges as well as increased awareness among Malaysians on cyber risk assurance, cyber risk assessment and managing cyber risk threats; to facilitate cyber resiliency of digital asset exchanges as well as safeguard Malaysian stakeholders,” said Amirudin. 

Fadzli Shah Anuar, CEO of MX Global Sdn Bhd, said cryptocurrencies are a hot topic in this day and age, but users must be vigilant on multiple fronts including safeguarding their own security when dealing with cryptocurrencies.

“To this end, we are honoured to be able to draw from CyberSecurity Malaysia’s extensive experience in cybersecurity, to take what they have learnt in the general digital space and translate that into what we hope would be best practices in the digital assets space,” he said.
