From The Star, 23 August 2019 PETALING JAYA: Airports are part of the critical national infrastructure and procedures must be in place to prevent system disruptions, says Cybersecurity Malaysia’s responsive services division senior vice-president Dr Aswami Fadillah Mohd Ariffin. “When you deploy any system, you need to understand the risk, then manage it accordingly by having a policy combined with technical safeguards, ” he said, adding an internal investigation was needed to figure out the cause of the problem. He said the glitch could be due to a number of reasons, from the system configuration not being up to date to pre-existing cybervulnerabilities or upgrading errors. He warned that even if the disruption was not due to a cyberattack, it put the system in a vulnerable situation which could open it up to an attack.
