Frauds, Intrusions, Cyber Harassment Top List Of Cyber Security Incidents

Last update: 07/09/2015
 
KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 7 (Bernama) -- CyberSecurity Malaysia has received a total of 6,800 cyber security incident reports as of July 2015 with fraud, intrusions and cyber harassment topping the list.

Its Chief Executive Officer, Dr Amirudin Abdul Wahab, said 2,000 fraud incidents were reported, followed by intrusions (814 incidents) and cyber harassment (270 incidents).

Other cyber security incidents were content-related, denial of service, intrusion attempt, malicious codes, spam and vulnerabilities report, he said.

Amirudin said exposure to the risk of cyber threat was higher now as almost all private and public sectors were increasingly depending on the information and communication technology in their business operations and services.

However, CyberSecurity Malaysia did not have the full data of the incidents that happened in Malaysia as it was not mandatory to report and individuals or organisation involved could have handled it themselves, he said.....
