MWKA Online Talk: Cybersecurity Laws in Malaysia


Wednesday, 10 February 2021 at 3:00pm - 3:45pm


Lesley Lim, Partner, Media, Entertainment & Sports Practice Group


Have you personally experienced or know someone who has been a victim of an online scam?

Online fraud is reportedly more lucrative than drug trafficking. Perhaps that is why there was a 90% increase in cyber crime complaints during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period between 18 March to 30 June last year. As our country faces a second MCO, now’s the time to learn about the laws relevant to cyber crime and some of the best practises that you and your company can apply to avoid being victims of internet fraud.

The talk will be delivered over video conference using Zoom.us. You can either view the talk from your web browser or download the Zoom app.
