Malaysia gains new international ICT security status

AvantiKumar | Sept. 28, 2011
Malaysia is the first country in ASEAN and developing countries to be recognised as Authorising Participant member by the International Common Criteria Conference.

CyberSecurity Malaysia chief executive officer Lt Col Prof Dato' Husin Jazri (Retired) said that Malaysia could offer ICT security assurance services to the ASEAN region as well as Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member countries.

"The Common Criteria (CC) recognition has put certified Malaysian ICT products in good stead to penetrate international ICT markets, including government sectors which demand rigorous independent analysis and stringent certification process," said Husin. "Malaysian ICT products today can leverage the CC benchmark to compete effectively against similar categories of products on the global ICT market," he said. "We call upon Malaysian ICT companies to approach CyberSecurity Malaysia to learn more about the Common Criteria Certification process and how it can benefit their product marketing edge."
