"The top 1000 ASEAN companies could lose $750 billion in market capitalization, and cybersecurity concerns could derail the region’s digital innovation agenda… ASEAN countries need to spend between 0.35 to 0.61 percent of their GDP – or $171 billion collectively on cybersecurity in the period spanning 2017 to 2025."
- Cybersecurity in ASEAN: An Urgent Call to Action, AT Kearney, 2018
In comparison, Malaysia’s potential economic loss due to cybersecurity incidents ‘can hit a staggering US$12.2 billion, which is more than 4 percent of the country’s total GDP, according to a recent report by Microsoft and Frost & Sullivan.

Apart from traditional penetration testing capabilities, my strategic vision for the organization are to provides unique risk and vulnerability management through threat intel, threat review and incident response capabilities, Red teaming expertise, targeted attack and advanced persistence threat (APT) simulation capabilities. Introduce and upskill governance, risk and compliance (GRC) domain knowledges to provide unique solution, for example - "root-cause based" policy and procedure review and development, as well as sound of knowledge in security design and system integration. These can be achieved by identifying the existing capabilities (e.g. skill matrix, cyber lab, knowledge bank etc.) and then develop a roadmap and plan, share this plan with all relevant stakeholders for feedbacks to ensure it align with company objectives, directions and future demand. Behavior management should be integrated to the plan to maintain high-performance team spirit by introducing a structure approach and tools that can be used. Each team should understand their team objective, nom, issues management approach and standard communication channel. It’s about “freedom with the right attitude” and understanding the concept of SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threat).

I have proved this in my experience, latest evidence would be -introduced numerous quality processes to BAE KL cyber team (KL cyber team) which eliminate repetitive questions from clients and received 98% score customer feedback out of 100% score.
