KUALA LUMPUR, September 19 – TechCreate, a trusted proprietary Payment and Managed Services Provider, is consolidating its position in the cybersecurity market through a series of strategic partnerships and industry accolades. During its participation at the Cyber Digital Services, Defence and Security Asia (CyberDSA) 2023 event, TechCreate Group CEO Lim Heng Hai announced, “We have secured an exclusive vendor partnership with the prestigious Korea Advanced Information Security Solutions (KAISS) consortium, aiming to deliver comprehensive Korean cybersecurity solutions to a global audience.

This milestone underscores our industry presence and our ability to form strategic alliances for our competitive advantage.” KAISS comprises SecuLetter, NETAND, and Somansa, with more expected to join. In response to YB Fahmi Fadzil, Minister of Communications and Digital’s statement during the launch of CyberDSA 2023, highlighting Malaysia’s shortage of 12,000 cybersecurity experts, Ronald Vong, Group Chief Commercial Officer of TechCreate, stated, “We are proud to be recognized as one of the most innovative cybersecurity educators, heeding the ministry’s call to fill the cybersecurity knowledge workers gap.”

TechCreate was honored with the Cyber Security Education Innovation of the Year award by YB Fahmi Fadzil at the Malaysia Cyber Security Awards 2023 hosted by CyberSecurity Malaysia. Last month, the company also received the Excellent Cybersecurity Solutions Provider and Excellent Bank Payment Gateway Provider awards. We are pleased to recognize TechCreate for their achievements in cybersecurity. The industry greatly benefits from the presence of outstanding enterprises like them, as they contribute to raising the standards within the sector, stated Dato’ Ts. Dr. Haji Amirudin Abdul Wahab, CEO of CyberSecurity Malaysia.

He emphasized the increasing complexity of the cyber landscape as projected by the 2023 Global Cybersecurity Outlook. “It is of utmost importance for organizations to proactively address this complexity to establish a robust long-term cyber resilience framework and ensure uninterrupted business operations. As such, organizations should implement strategic cybersecurity measures to mitigate the impact of cyber-attacks, with a strong focus on response and recovery strategies. TechCreate’s influence extends to community contribution with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) for Academic, Research, and Development collaboration.
