Additionally, BAE Systems and CyberSecurity Malaysia (CSM) will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will see their partnership extended to further strengthen a relationship that contributes to the cyber safety of Malaysia.

”As we enter into a period of global uncertainty and with the prevalence of international cybercrime, DSA presents a great opportunity to continue to foster the relationships we have with our partners here in Malaysia and across Asia,” said Josh Brosnan, BAE Systems Managing Director for South East Asia.

”We are confident with the industrial outlook here in Malaysia, and we believe that the DSA is the best forum for us to showcase our capabilities in terms of aerospace engineering, cybersecurity and education which are all achieved through local partnerships”.

”As an organisation, we currently employ over 400 people in Malaysia and our economic contribution has generated a further 7000 jobs across the country. We are proud to be a part of Malaysia’s growth,” he added.
