Firing up forensics

Thanks to Lee Kah Leng from The Star for this interview on Digital Forensics.

CyberSecurity is using its expertise in security and forensics to expand its services to the masses. 
In 1997, MyCERT (Malaysia Computer Emergency Response Team) was formed to tackle ­emerging security issues when the Internet was still in its infancy. It soon became a part of a bigger unit called Niser (National ICT Security and Emergency Response Centre) to guard our digital borders before finally becoming the entity we know today – CyberSecurity Malaysia.

Beyond the name change, CyberSecurity has also evolved as an organisation, pushing the boundaries of what it can offer to government agencies, private ­sector and even the public.

Into the future
Housed in CyberSecurity’s ­facility in Seri Kembangan, Kuala Lumpur is the Cyber Forensic X lab where the organisation researches and develops cutting edge technologies to help combat digital crime.

The lab creates its own high grade tools so it doesn’t have to buy exorbitantly priced ­professional equipment, says CyberSecurity’s vice-president for cyber security responsive services, Dr Aswami Ariffin.
