September 20, 2016 – In a first-of-its-kind partnership, Dimension Data (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd and AIG Malaysia Insurance Berhad signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to offer their clients more extensive end-to-end cyber security protection tailored to their risk profiles.
This pilot partnership to provide end-to-end cyber security protection combines the cyber security capabilities of Dimension Data, and AIG’s CyberEdge insurance. Dimension Data will assess the risk level of an organisation’s IT systems, while AIG provides the insurance coverage, access to tools, and best practices to increase their security posture.

Botnets are a number of computers that have been set up to forward transmissions, which include spam or viruses, to other computers on the internet.
