92 Malaysian companies have successfully obtained information security certificates from CyberSecurity Malaysia (CSM) as of Dec 31, 2014, the country’s national cybersecurity specialist agency said in a statement.
CyberSecurity Malaysia (CSM) has launched MyTrustSEAL, a service that involves auditing and validating e-commerce websites and entities to provide Internet users a way of identifying e-businesses that are legitimate and will deliver as promised.
CyberSecurity Malaysia said it has been elected and appointed as the 2014 Chair of the World Trustmark Alliance (WTA), and that with this appointment, its chief executive officer Dr Amirudin Abdul Wahab is now the Chairman of the WTA.
CyberSecurity Malaysia has awarded certificates to 23 companies which had complied with security standards such as Common Criteria ISO/IEC 15408, Information Security Management System (ISMS) ISO/IEC 27001, and Malaysia’s Trustmark e-business validation.
It was a week that was all about security, trust and standards in the online sphere – and quite a bit about the lack of all these when it comes to Malaysia, writes A. Asohan.
