January 2015: AKATI Consulting Launches Alpha Computer Emergency Response Team (A-CERT)
1 January 2015, Kuala Lumpur - AKATI Consulting today launches the new Alpha Computer Emergency Response Team “A-CERT". This initiative was taken to respond effectively to a larger range of technology driven organisations that struggle with computer incidents of many forms. With the increasing rate of cyber crime, AKATI Consulting has felt the need to contribute more towards eradicating computer crime or 'incidents', as it is called. The trust customers have placed on the services provided by AKATI Consulting is the main factor of its growth and therefore AKATI Consulting intends to keep that trust and deliver their promise of excellence.
AKATI Consulting believes that building smart partnerships with International organisations that can match the quality of service provided by AKATI Consulting can enhance its capacity, enabling it to serve a wider range of customers who are in need of Information Security Services.
AKATI Consulting is well known in the Information Security industry for prompt and reliable incident response. A-CERT operates under AKATI Consulting and is responsible for co-ordinating responses to cyber criminal activities. A-CERT is available on-call, round the clock, to make sure the client responds quickly and appropriately to a security incident.
Having the required knowledge, capacity and skills to be proactive and to set standards for client organisations, A-CERT aspires to particularly focus on the protection of organisations that are a critical part of the national infrastructure, such as banks, mobile operators and power generation and distribution firms. A-CERT will also function as a point of contact for co-ordinating international responses to computer security incidents.
A-CERT maintains affiliations with federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies to empower its digital intelligence and investigations. The team is trained to assist agencies in executing search warrants that may involve particularly sophisticated and technical countermeasures.
