NATIONAL cyber-security specialist centre CyberSecurity Malaysia (CSM) has announced it would be holding its flagship event, the Cyber Security Malaysia Awards, Conference & Exhibition 2013 (CSM-ACE 2013), from Nov 13-14 in Kuala Lumpur.
CSM, which is under the purview of the Ministry of Science, Technology & Innovation (MOSTI), said the event, which has the theme ‘Securing Cyberspace for Economic Growth,’ aims to catalyse innovation and growth in the cyber-security industry.
The event is now open for registration and participation from organisations as well as industry partners, it said in a statement.
“CSM-ACE 2013 is expected to attract over 300 corporate leaders, chief information security officers, information security managers and professionals, policy makers, law enforcement officers and academicians,” said CSM chief executive officer Dr Amirudin Abdul Wahab (pic).
The awards component of CSM-ACE consists of eight categories for distinguished individuals and organisations in recognition of their significant contribution to the cyber-security, safety and well-being of Malaysian cyberspace, CSM said.
The conference is aimed at being a knowledge-sharing platform to gather industry experts and the community on the latest trends in cyber-security. There will be two tracks, the first on governance and risk management, while the second is a technical track.
Finally, the exhibition will showcase trade and investment opportunities by assisting and allowing industry players to promote their products and services, CSM said.
“This year, we will also add the CyberSAFE Programme (Cyber Security Awareness For Everyone) as one of the activities to focus on educating Malaysian Internet users on the importance of cyber-security and to inculcate positive use of the Internet,” said Dr Amirudin.
“The CyberSAFE programme started in 2009 and has since reached out to more than 114,000 people nationwide,” he claimed.
The participation fee for the two-day conference is RM899 per person and is claimable under the HRDF (Human Resource Development Fund). The early birds rate is RM699 per person if registration is made before July 31.
