KUALA LUMPUR, April 22 — Malaysian cybersecurity company LE Global Services Sdn Bhd (LGMS) is extending complimentary services for the local healthcare industry and charity organisations involved in battling the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the movement control order (MCO) period until October 2020.

LGMS group managing director Fong Choong-Fook said, “Cybersecurity is our field of expertise, and, being the largest cybersecurity testing and assessment service provider in Malaysia, we would like to contribute appropriately during the MCO.”

Complimentary services offered include cybersecurity vulnerability assessment, whereby LGMS would test for vulnerabilities within organisations’ digital assets and infrastructures, before embarking to ensure that all “back doors are tightened” to keep hackers at bay.

In the event that these organisations become victims of cyber attacks, LGMS would then provide the necessary skills, experience and knowledge needed during such times of crisis.

“Organisations affected by breaches need to manage their response, investigate and understand the root causes behind an incident while putting the appropriate remediation plans in place,” Fong said.

This development by LGMS follows in the wake of CyberSecurity Malaysia having noted a 82.5 percent surge in the number of reported cybersecurity incidents as recorded by the agency’s emergency response centre in the three weeks from March 18 as compared with the same period in the previous year.  

Fong also said LGMS has also observed a “huge spike” in random cyber attacks on businesses since the start of the MCO.

“This MCO has essentially accelerated digital adoption among businesses, some of which may not have had the time to adequately protect themselves from cyber-attacks.

“It is increasingly important for organisations to ensure adequate cybersecurity protection due to the new digital reality in the way interaction and commerce is handled,” he added.
