Information about the project
Global Accredited Cybersecurity Education (ACE) Scheme
Global ACE Scheme
Needs and demands for human capital are more pressing than ever before. The environment of uncertainty along with the spectre of potential threats hinders ecosystem players from pursuing cyber-related initiatives thus restricting economic development. CyberSecurity Malaysia (CSM) realises the needs by establishing a holistic framework of cyber security professional certification. The Global Accredited Cybersecurity Education (ACE) Scheme was initiated in the year 2016 through strategic collaborations with the government, academia and industries. The Scheme is aiming at enhancing the skill-sets of cyber security professionals congruent with local and regional requirements while ensuring a consistent and high-quality service level from accredited personnels.
