Cabotage policy for submarine cable repair vital against data threats


Malaysia Shipowner’s Association (MASA) chairman Datuk Abdul Hak Md Amin

Its chairman Datuk Abdul Hak Md Amin said relying on foreign vessels to perform submarine cable maintenance every time was more likely to expose the country to possible data security threats.
