Kaspersky teams up with Small and Medium Enterprises Association Malaysia (SAMENTA) in an effort to bring cyber awareness to its members and employees.
The workshop session, hosted online by Kaspersky for SAMENTA’s members and employees, focuses on understanding the monetary aspects of cyberthreats to Malaysian small and medium enterprises (SMEs), identifying the common vulnerabilities in the SMEs eco-systems, finding the right professional security solutions, and deploying integrated cybersecurity practices amidst the current pandemic situation.
The General Manager for Southeast Asia at Kaspersky, Yeo Siang Tiong said, they are very much eager to align their promos and programs with the SMEs’ needs in Malaysia.
“This sector has been battered by Covid-19 and we have to help them as much as we can in protecting their assets. It is important for us to hear, first-hand, the challenges SMEs face in terms of cybersecurity, to allow us to figure out how we can assist them better.
“We are honoured to partner with SAMENTA on this initiative and we believe that with secured tools and right knowledge, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) can survive this pandemic,” he said.
Both entities joined forces to achieve their mutual goal of preparing and enhancing the skills of SAMENTA members to be able to secure their networks and systems as they drive towards further digitalisation.
