The public need not be alarmed by the daily rise in cyber attacks, as the government, particularly the National Cyber Security Agency (NACSA), actively monitors these incidents.

Bernama reported Deputy Minister of Communications Teo Nie Ching as saying that cyberattacks, occurring across various platforms, are not unprecedented, especially with the advancement of digital telecommunication networks.

Teo reassured the public that there is currently no cause for concern. These incidents often coincide with international developments, particularly those involving sensitive issues. Consequently, the government has introduced the Cyber Security Bill aimed at safeguarding critical national infrastructure such as data centres, hospitals, banking, and communication systems, which are vital assets for national security.

Teo emphasised the importance of maintaining trust and confidence in national security agencies like the Ministry of Defence and the National Security Council to address cyber threats effectively. These agencies possess the capability to protect sensitive national security data and information.

Defence Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin previously highlighted that the country’s defence system faces around 3,000 cyberattacks daily, particularly following Malaysia’s declaration of support for Palestine.

The Dewan Rakyat recently passed the Cyber Security Bill 2024, intended to bolster the nation’s cyber security by implementing specific measures, standards, and processes for managing cyber threats.
