ADDRESSING CYBER ATTACKS IN A HYPER SENSITIVE MEDIA ENVIRONMENT AND THE IMPACT ON STAKEHOLDER VALUE

The Malaysia Global Business Forum (MGBF)’s exclusive roundtable on ‘Addressing Weaponised Information in the Media’ was held in a hybrid setting today at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur. The discussion focused on addressing one of the most relevant threats to businesses in the digital economy – cyber threats causing physical and reputational losses.

The battlespace has evolved. The objectives remain the same but tactics have changed.

The battlespace has evolved. The objectives remain the same but tactics have changed. "The Cognitive Game" explores how critical corporate supply chains are impacted by cognitive attacks. These attacks play out in the digital and physical worlds, on the surface they may seem like cyber attacks or attacks in the media by activists but they go deeper than initially imagined. We will look at what it means for countries and corporations to fight a conflict in the collective minds of constituent populations. The convergence of human knowledge has come down to how leaders will marshal their resources, but what are the strategic resources in cognitive warfare? What are your core strategic interests and what are the gaps in your defenses? Check out the opening gambit of the game here: https://youtu.be/gW-ZS2iGkmc

What businesses need to know about foresight in Malaysia

The current floods that have impacted various parts of the country have given rise to an extensive commentary on the response cycles of various stakeholders.  It has in turn led to continued crisis communications and statements in the media by agencies and ministries alike.  This binary approach to the discussion has also created a perceived “us and them” situation when in a crisis of this nature there should only be “we”. Instead of being anxious about the ongoing commentary and flood of social media comments, the government should now take the opportunity to actively listen and embrace the process. This is free business intelligence, especially if the business model is keeping people happy and safe.  Don’t let the critical data go the way of the floodwaters – simply flowing into the oceans or seeping back into the soil. The challenge will be organising the information into a meaningful framework. For [...]

Drones and Smart Cities – A response to COVID-19

To drone or not to drone, is no longer a question.  The COVID-19 pandemic has brought into sharp focus the need to remove the human touch from the delivery of many goods and services.  How will we humanise this experience in the coming years and strike a balance between the buzz of drones and the friendly smile of a delivery person?  According to the latest data from the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, 55 per cent of the world’s population lives in urban areas. This is expected to increase to 68 per cent by 2050.  It’s clear that cities will need to be smarter and drones will play an increasingly leading role. A city can only be as smart as the people who live there, which means we are looking at an education problem. Putting that aside, cities vying to be considered “smart” need to be the [...]

Covid-19: The strategic value of the halal industry

THE outbreak has exposed the populations of most countries to a dangerous virus. At the same time, perhaps more importantly, it has exposed weaknesses in supply chains of nations across the globe.The Malaysian government should be commended for establishing a taskforce to maintain critical supply chains. This is an excellent step to ensure that what is primarily a medical crisis doesn’t turn into a broader crisis. With the movement control order (MCO) extended, the role of ensuring supply chains remain functioning will be critical on two fronts — food and medical supplies.This is where the halal industry, especially SME’s, will play an important role in feeding the nation. Over the last two decades, the concept of halal has been progressively applied to various industries from agriculture, food manufacturing, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and logistics.Malaysia is now the beneficiary of a forward-thinking policy to address food security gaps 20 years ago while empowering [...]
