The Malaysian Autonomous Intelligence & Robotics Association (MyAIRA) will be co-organizing a webinar on Cybersecurity together with the Malaysian South-South Association (MASSA) and the Expertise Resource Association (ERA) in association with the Malaysia-Japan Economic Association (MAJECA).

In today’s globally digitised world, the amount of data accessed, utilised and shared across complex networks continues to grow.

The ongoing pandemic has accelerated communities and businesses to utilise these digital platforms which, in turn, can exacerbate the rise of cyber-attacks, ranging from phishing, malware, ransomware and many more. As we increasingly become more digitalised in our businesses and daily life (and the lines between the two are further blurred with the gaining prevalence of tele-working), we face a wider exposure towards cybersecurity threats that are becoming more intelligent and insidious.

Enterprises need to protect the trust of their stakeholders. A sound cybersecurity strategy requires not only the right technologies to be in place, but also consumers’ awareness on how their data can be compromised. This webinar will aim to highlight these cyber risks, the strategies and accessible solutions that can be relevant to enterprises and consumers.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Ms Hanniz Lam, Communications Director, MyAIRA.
