13th July 2005 (The Star)

KUALA LUMPUR:Two symposiums, a workshop and an exhibition will be among the highlights of the inaugural e-Secure Malaysia Security 2005 Conference to be held here at the Putra World Trade Centre from Sept 28 to Oct 1.

The four-day international conference is themed "Building e-Trust for National Competitiveness" and will feature more than 40 local and foreign speakers deliberating on information security issues.

It is jointly organised by several governmental organisations, the Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry and the Energy, Water and Communications Ministry.

Datuk Dr Jamuludin Jarjis, Science, Technology and Innovation Minister, said the advancement in wired and wireless technologies have contributed to a greater and more complex information flow.

"Issues such as spamming, virus attacks, intrusions, and web defacement are on the rise," he said. "Such developments call for stringent measures to systematically counter cyberthreats, minimise vulnerabilities, and manage risks undertaken by businesses."

Attending the conference is Dr Eugene Schultz, principal engineer at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory at the University of California, and Prof Hideki Imai of the Institute of Industrial Science at the University of Tokyo.

e-secure Malaysia 2005 will feature four events held concurrently. They are: e-Secure Malaysia Conference, e-Secure Malaysia Exhibition, MyCrypt 2005 Conference, and CISSP (Certified Information System Security Professional) Boot Camp.
