CGD Annual Cybersecurity Summit 4.0

CGD’s Cybersecurity Summit 4.0 this year, kicked off in Langkawi with the cognisance that today, Malaysia, its economy, government, citizens and more, are  driven by digital technologies.  This comes with new security issues as more people, businesses and organisations are being connected to the Internet, according to Cyber Security Malaysia’s CEO, Datuk Dr. Amirudin bin Abdul Wahab.

He wanted to highlight that the ability to resist, respond and recover from attacks is very important, and that every organisation need to do their part to get themselves ready and resilient against these attacks.

Dr. Amir also shared other national-level policy news, for example a revamped personal data protection act (PDPA) that is slated to appear next year.

Spotlight on cybersecurity

CGD, was created to be an independent platform where IT end users and cybersecurity solution providers can meet, share, learn and to speak in a frank and no-holds barred manner.

CGD co-founder, Rodney Lee said, “We do not want to be placed in a position to say something to benefit somebody. Being independent, we can be frank and direct with our narrative and facilitation of our events as well.”

After 7 years of organising cybersecurity events for a variety of industries in the local ecosystem, CGD has earned a reputation of being an independent and cybersecurity-focused event facilitator.

Here is a collection of presentation snippets by each security vendor participating in CGD’s summit, this year. (Note: Fire Eye requested for their presentation to be not recorded).
