About Cyber Security Modular Professional Certification


   

Cyber security is critical in the success of Industry Revolution 4.0 which is driven by people, process and technology. Shortage of cyber security professionals worldwide is one of the main challenges to increase effectiveness in cyber security initiatives.

With the Global ACE Scheme professional certifications, more knowledge workers can be certified, while through the Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET), they can be further equipped with effective hands-on capabilities.

One of the methods to address this shortage is to align both the Global ACE Scheme professional certifications and the TVET, developing more personnel to be effective professionals with multiple skillsets who are capable of providing optimal cyber security solutions.

CSM together with the Department of Skills Development Malaysia (JPK) and the Malaysia Board of Technologists (MBOT) have initiated a project to integrate the Global ACE Scheme professional certifications and TVET training into a maiden project known as the Cyber Security Modular Professional Certifications through the National Occupational Skills Standard (NOSS).
