Let’s Talk in 5G

    On one hand, the diffusion of 5G technologies is expected to increase the adoption of data-related technologies, thus realising Malaysia’s economic vision.

    On the other, against the backdrop of Malaysia’s maturing cyber security and developing data governance regime, vulnerabilities in supply chains and sufficient oversight in data governance can impact safety and security.

    Join us for this half-day event to explore Malaysia’s rollout of 5G, identify future security issues and scrutinise mechanisms that could be raised to mitigate present and future risks.

    This webinar is a collaboration between ISIS Malaysia and the Australian High Commission in Kuala Lumpur.
