Date 19 October 2016 (Wednesday)
Time 2.00pm - 5.00pm
Venue The Royale Chulan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

In 2013, CyberSecurity Malaysia organized a CyberSAFE Challenge Throphy among schools throughout Malaysia. This debate was part of a series of activities under CyberSAFE in Schools - a program to raise awareness on the importance of cyber safety and personal information security in Malaysia. It encourages both students and teachers to be more responsible in using the Internet and other online technologies. This is also a venue to nurture an open and constructive conversation on cyber safety and security issues, apart from developing a fresh perspective on the key issues on the area of cyber safety and security.

This year CyberSecurity Malaysia plan to organize the CyberSAFE Challenge Throphy with a different approach and style. The CyberSAFE Challenge Throphy will be in a form of discourse; whereby the team will develop, present and stand up to uphold their cyber security proposal to the Panel of Experts.

We hope that from this new format, we could equip students with a better knowledge and new perspective on cyber safety and security issues. This will prepare the students in handling a real life challenges and enhanced problem solving skills with regards to issues in cyber safety and security.

In National level, there will be 16 selected schools to compete in this competition in NICTSeD 2016.
