MCMC renews support for international security conference

by Nikola Strahija on July 21st, 2005 Hack In The Box (M) Sdn Bhd, organizers of Malaysia’s non-profit home-grown International hacking and network security conference, is proud to announce that the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has once again stepped forward to lend its support for its 5th Hack In The Box Security Conference - HITBSecconf2005 – Malaysia. Set to be held at The Westin Kuala Lumpur, from September 26th to the 29th, this years’ event has been extended further and will now feature six hands-on technical training classes in addition to 2-days of deep knowledge technical presentations.

According to Adelina Iskandar, MCMC’s Head of Corporate Comunications, “MCMC is very much concerned with issues related to internet security and we welcome efforts to address these concerns. The list of speakers at this conference is a Who’s Who when it comes to this subject matter. They are the best around and it certainly pays to listen to what they have to say.”

In issues of information and network security, the Malaysian communications and multimedia industry is guided by the 10th National Policy Objective of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 (Act 588), and that is, to ensure information security and network reliability and integrity. In the liberalized industry, network infrastructure in Malaysia is privately owned, and it is thus imperative for network owners to ensure the security and reliability and integrity of the network so that consumers feel safe and have full confidence in its delivery.

HITBSecConf2005 – Malaysia will see over 30 of the world’s leading computer and network security experts speak and present their latest research and findings. The highlight of the conference will be the keynote speakers, who will be none other than Mr. Mikko Hypponen, Chief Research Officer at F-Secure Corp and Mr. Tony Chor, Group Program Manager, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Microsoft Corporation.
