HELP University and Group-IB, a cybersecurity technologies creator, are partnering to focus on designing, developing and organising cybersecurity and digital forensics educational programmes, courses, workshops and consultancy initiatives.

These efforts are geared towards nurturing a robust pipeline of cybersecurity talents in Malaysia to address the growing demand for skilled professionals in the field.

The collaboration, aimed at bolstering cybersecurity education, will commence with the development and delivery of specialised technical courses in the upcoming academic year.

HELP vice-chancellor Prof Dr Andy Liew Teik Kooi said the varsity is committed to providing its students and staff with industry-relevant education that equips them with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in cybersecurity.

“Through our partnership with Group-IB, we aim to address the cybersecurity skills gap in Malaysia by offering hands-on courses that enhance employability with practical knowledge and real-world application and meet the evolving demands of the industry,” he said in a press release dated March 22.

Under the partnership, Group-IB will contribute its expertise by developing and delivering specialised technical cybersecurity courses and learning frameworks for HELP undergraduate and postgraduate students.

This includes providing access to its technologies such as Threat Intelligence and Managed Extended Detection & Response (MXDR); training materials and modules in Incident Management, Digital Forensics and Threat Hunting; and subject matter experts to facilitate practical learning experiences.

Group-IB founder and chief executive officer Dmitry Volkov said the partnership, which includes establishing a knowledge-exchange framework for HELP educators to enhance their professional development, will enrich the varsity’s cybersecurity curriculum with industry-relevant education.

“Together, we will equip students with the knowledge and hands-on experience needed to thrive, making significant progress that benefits both academia and industry in Malaysia,” he said.
