  • I am a SME located outside of Malaysia, can I request a security audit?
    Normally security audits involves a number of visits to the SME's premises to review of the physical security as well as conduct interviews with different personnel to understand the systems, the processes and the level of awareness of security controls. However, it is possible to do the above actions remotely using virtual meeting tools (such as Teams) if there is a sufficient level of support from the SME.
