 Malaysia to set up centre against cyber-terrorism

Latest NewsKuala Lumpur, May 7: Malaysia has announced the setting up an international centre to fight cyber-terrorism and provide an emergency response to such attacks on the economy or trading system of any country.

The centre, to be set up at the IT hub of Cyberjaya near here, will be funded and supported by governments around the world and the private sector, Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was quoted as saying by the 'New Strait Times'.

Badawi launched the initiative yesterday at the close of the World Congress on Information Technology in Austin, USA.

The daily today said...

the centre will be modelled after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta which provides expertise on the handling of viruses and outbreaks of diseases around the globe.

Badawi said countries could no longer afford to ignore the threat posed by cyber-terrorism.

"The potential to wreak havoc and cause disruption to people, governments and global systems has increased as the world becomes more globalised," the premier was quoted as saying by the daily.

Badawi called upon countries to "work in concert" to wipe out the dangers of cutting-edge technology .

"Governments must be prepared to deal with threats in cyberspace. Even if one were to exclude the risk to life and limb, the economic loss caused by a cyber attack can be truly severe, for example, a nationwide blackout," he said adding that Malaysia would set up and host the 'International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber-terrorism (Impact)'.

The report said Symantec Corporation of the US, Japan's MICRO and Russia's Kapersky Lab had agreed to be partners and serve on Impact's international advisory board
