Check your cybersecurity health


CyberSecurity Malaysia introduced the first cyber security ‘health check’ programme back in 2021 to help secure Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), known as the “Program Galakan Pemerkasaan Keselamatan Siber (PGPKS) untuk Perusahaan Kecil dan Sederhana (PKS)”.

One of CyberSecurity Malaysia’s initiatives under the 12th Malaysia Plan, the programme supports the needs of SMEs in facing cyber security challenges and mitigating potential cyber threats through cyber security health checks and establishing a solid foundation for cyber security among SMEs, said its chief executive officer Datuk Dr Amirudin Abdul Wahab.

“The programme offers five component services worth RM100,000,00, which includes Malware Scanning, Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) Assessment, Information Security Governance Risk and Compliance (ISGRiC) Assessment, Certified Training, and Awareness,” he said, subject to the SMEs’ existing infrastructure and business category.

Among the benefits for SMEs joining this program are:

a) A better understanding of the cyber security condition and readiness of their organisation.

b) Early detection of malware/ransomware to save and protect customers’ data, intellectual property, employee information, and financial information.

c) Determination and implementation of necessary remedial and preventive actions to minimise future loss.

d) Promotion of cyber security policies in the working environment and staying well-versed in the latest cyber trends and threats.

“SMEs that are interested in joining this program need to complete an eligibility questionnaire to determine their qualification by visiting https://forms.cybersecurity.my/index.php/pgpks-questionnaires or email cshcp@cybersecurity.my.”
