KPMG today called for a more more legal impetus to combat brazen and callous ransomware attacks as cyberattacks are no longer just a business issue but have become a threat to national security.

Head of cyber Jaco Benadie said COVID-19 has changed the cyber threat landscape and stricter laws should be considered to enhance security against cyberattacks.

“The problem with cyberattacks such as ransomware is that these are essentially ‘borderless’ crimes.

“Most of these criminals cannot be held accountable for their actions if they are based in a different country from where the crime is committed without any law enforcement collaboration agreements in place,” he said in a statement.



Payment service provider GHL SYSTEMS BHD (GHL) has signed a commercial agreement with Flexiroam Ltd for the provision of secured cellular connectivity.

He said the contract has an initial term of two years, whereby GHL would pay a monthly fee at commercial rates for each terminal deployed.
