For the 3rd year, Cyber Security Challenge was conducted and 400+ students competed against each other in the teams of 4 people and demonstrated their skills and knowledge in solving the top rated cyber security challenges. This year the winner from Malaysia, competed against the winner from Thailand and occupied the second place in final.

This year we had a new challenge we called Cyber Security Innovation Challenge. R&D team at KPMG in Malaysia was the main coordinator for this event and students from different universities presented their ideas and concepts and amazingly, one team could find their sponsor to bring their idea to life and make their dreams come true!
