Kaspersky, a global cybersecurity and anti-virus company, forecasts that the threat of cyber attacks will continue to increase in Malaysia in 2024, particularly for organisations in the financial and telecommunications sectors handling personal data.

Bernama reports that according to the company, its detection systems thwarted 26.85 million “Internet-borne” attacks in Malaysia in 2023, equivalent to 74,000 daily attacks.

Additionally, Kaspersky’s detection system blocked 22 million threats from local infections in the country, translating to 60,000 attacks per day.

Yeo Siang Tiong, Kaspersky’s general manager for Southeast Asia, emphasised that the sophistication of attacks has grown over time, posing risks even to the most secure operating systems.

He highlighted the need for businesses to prioritise system security by equipping employees and technical teams with up-to-date tools to identify and defend against potential threats promptly.

“As advanced persistent threat (APT) actors are constantly evolving their tactics and searching for new weaknesses to exploit, businesses must prioritise the security of their systems,” he said.
