SECURITY agency CyberSecurity Malaysia (CSM) is organising a training course under the Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP) from June 21 to June 30.
The programme focuses on participants from the Asean and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation-Computer Emergency Response Team (OIC-CERT) member countries, CSM said in a statement.
The eight day certification course entitled Certified Penetration Tester is part of the government’s commitment to supporting capacity enhancement for developing countries. It does so through the sharing of development experiences and expertise, providing human capacity building programmes and offering technical assistance.
“This is the sixth cyber security training conducted by CSM under the MTCP, following the success of previous training programmes conducted over the last five years,” said Amirudin Abdul Wahab (pic), chief executive officer (CEO) CSM.
“This shows Malaysia’s commitment in leading the capacity building initiatives for the Asean and OIC-CERT member countries.”
Amirudin said 12 IT officers and professionals from five Asean and OIC-CERT countries namely Bangladesh, Brunei, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam will participate in the training, which will be conducted online, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
In line with MTCP’s objectives to share Malaysia’s development experience, CSM said the course leverages on the advanced cybersecurity knowledge and capabilities from domain experts and experienced practitioners.
The course will focus on equipping participants with the abilities to handle vulnerability assessments and penetration tests for their customers, CSM said.
It also teaches ways to harden the corporate digital networks and systems to boost security, it added.
