Venue Royale Chulan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Cyber Security Malaysia - Awards, Conference & Exhibition (CSM-ACE) is a public-private-partnership driven event and a knowledge sharing platform that recognises contribution of individuals and organisations in the field of cyber security. The objectives of CSM-ACE are:

  • to act as a catalyst in driving innovation and growth for the cyber security industry
  • to inculcate cyber security culture at national level.
  • to gather industry experts and community on the latest cyber security trends.
  • to showcase trade and investment opportunities by assisting and allowing industry players to promote their products and services.
  • to nurture a culture of cyber security awareness amongst users, by educating and offering support to strengthen Malaysian self-reliance in terms of? technology and human resources




Cyber defence focuses on sensing, detecting, orienting, and engaging adversaries in order to evade cyber attacks. This requires a strong emphasis on integration of all activities as mentioned above. Amongst others, cyber defence provides early warning indicators, cyber threat intelligence, and incident response mechanisms. Thus, cyber defence has greater efficacy and drastically reduces severity of cyber attacks leading to a safe and secure cyber environment.

Cyber security is no longer just an IT issue, but it is now a business risk issue. The landscape of businesses has changed to be more global and this in turn also increased the “digitized” way of operating. We will be more exposed to increasing threats if we do not manage the risk of cyber security.

Organizations nowadays need to focus on 3 core things for Cyber Security; Prevention, Threat Detection and Live Response. Companies can’t do endpoint security in isolation; it must be an integrated response.

Organized by Vigilant Asia and co-hosted by SME Corp and supported by CyberSecurity Malaysia, where participants are Small Medium Enterprises .
