Collaborative Research Initiative Aims to Enhance ESG Practices in Sabah’s Maritime Industry

Collaborative Research Initiative Aims to Enhance ESG Practices in Sabah’s Maritime Industry

Technology Depository Agency Berhad (TDA) has launched an initiative through the Industrial Collaboration Programme (ICP) to spearhead research and development efforts focused on a Framework for Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) in the Sabah Maritime Industry. This endeavor aims to modernise methods for evaluating corporate risk, meeting contemporary investors’ needs. The ESG Framework serves as a pivotal tool for investors to assess companies, analysing material risks and growth opportunities before making investment decisions.

In recent years, the maritime industry has faced various challenges, prompting increased emphasis on ESG practices and scoring accuracy. This scrutiny is essential to attract investors and meet stakeholders’ expectations. The maritime sector, characterised by its diverse players and roles, poses a unique challenge in developing a unified ESG Framework suitable for all stakeholders. Despite their interconnectedness, each player in the sector fulfills distinct roles across various activities.

This research project, undertaken in collaboration with Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd (SPSB), and Lembaga Pelabuhan – Pelabuhan Sabah (LPPS), aims to develop three design policies for ESG performance tailored to the Marine Sector, including the Shipping Industry, Port Industry, and Marine Industry. The research will employ a quantitative-qualitative approach, focusing on the Malaysian Maritime Industry.

Two main activities are planned as part of this initiative. TDA hopes that the developed framework and report findings will serve as valuable references for the future of ESG in the maritime sector.

ICP Triggers Strategic Collaboration Between TDA, Datasonic, and UiTM in Developing Competencies Against Cybersecurity Threats

ICP Triggers Strategic Collaboration Between TDA, Datasonic, and UiTM in Developing Competencies Against Cybersecurity Threats

SHAH ALAM, 22 SEPT 2023 – A new Center of Cybersecurity was officiated by Dr. Sharoul Jambari, Chief Executive Officer of the Technology Depository Agency (TDA) at the College of Computing, Informatics and Mathematics Studies (KPPIM), Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). The facility, which will also become the Cybersecurity Center at UiTM, is one of the projects that arose from government procurement under the Ministry of Home Affairs (KDN) and has been required to fulfill the obligations of the Industrial Collaboration Program (ICP). The facility was developed by Datasonic Technologies Sdn. Bhd. (DTSB) as the ICP provider and the project was aimed at improving local efficiency in preventing cybersecurity threats.

The laboratory equipped with advanced equipment and software specialized in the field of cybersecurity has been developed with three main focuses which include technology and knowledge transfer, human capital development, as well as research and development (R&D) and commercialization.

Through the procurement by KDN that exceeds the threshold value for the need to implement ICP, DTSB as an ICP provider has agreed to upgrade the cybersecurity laboratory at KPPIM, UiTM so that the existing laboratory can be used as a response and prevention hub for cybersecurity threats. While TDA, which is the ICP authority, has taken on the role of managing and monitoring the implementation of this project in line with the ICP policy that has already been outlined by the Ministry of Finance (MOF).

In the effort of supporting the 4th Pillar of Malaysia’s Cybersecurity Strategy 2020-2024, there is a need to strengthen capacity development, awareness, and education about cybersecurity. Therefore, this Cybersecurity Center will play a role not only in driving academic excellence, but also skills and strategic needs in cybersecurity and big data analytics.

Chief Executive Officer of TDA, Dr. Sharoul Jambari said, “This project is one of the good examples to illustrate how ICP can generate investment cooperation between universities and industry. With the technology and knowledge transfer process that has been carried out, we hope that this project will have an impact and return that gives added value to the country, especially in the field of cybersecurity.”

The Vice Chancellor of UiTM, YBhg. Professor Datuk Dr. Hajah Roziah Mohd Janor said, “The expert workforce resulting from this center will provide a secure cyber ecosystem and be able to defend cyber assets such as networks, information systems and programs or application systems from any threats such as data theft and cyber-attacks. This will in turn give an advantage to the national cybersecurity development and defense process and indirectly attract foreign investors to invest in Malaysia.”

In developing local capacity and expertise, the Cybersecurity Center also offers specific training that will empower local skills and talents. Among the training courses offered are the Data Analytics (BDA) course, the Security Operations Center (SOC) course, and the Certified Network Defender (CND). These certification courses are not only of international standard, but also cheaper by 25% to 40% as compared to the market price. In addition, this Cybersecurity Center can also be used by any ministry or government agency to conduct any course and training with the assistance of experts from UiTM.

In addition, the strategic collaboration in developing this Cyber Security Center has opened up space for the development of an application known as UiTM Digital Sandbox, a dashboard that will be commercialized. This application has been developed by researchers at UiTM together with DTSB which will work as a defense system to monitor any intrusion in the network of computer systems, and also detect any cyber threats.

“We hope that the launch of this project will be beneficial and will be utilized in the best way by each party in gaining practical experience and a practical overview of the latest technology that will strengthen the nation’s cyber defense collectively. It is also hoped that this project will produce a generation of cybersecurity experts who can safeguard our digital landscape,” said YBhg. Datuk Hanifah Nordin, Chief Executive Officer of Datasonic Group Berhad in his speech.

BETO Training Programme 2.0 Continues Strengthening the National Shipping and Maritime Industry

BETO Training Programme 2.0 Continues Strengthening the National Shipping and Maritime Industry

KLANG, 14 SEPT 2023

A total of 20 participants have officially received a letter of offer to participate in the Bridging Electro-Technical Officer (BETO) Training Programme at the official launch of the BETO 2.0 Training Programme held on the MV Polaris, MATRAIN Port, Klang, Selangor. The event was officiated by Puan Rohayah Mohd Zain, Deputy Director General, Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA). Also present at the opening ceremony was En. Nordin Mohamadin, Deputy Director General (Planning), Malaysian Marine Department (JLM), and Dr. Sharoul Jambari, Chief Executive Officer, Technology Depository Agency (TDA).

The BETO Training Programme is a training course that has been introduced by JLM and run by TDA to help diploma and bachelor’s degree students majoring in electric or electronics or mechatronics to get job opportunities in the shipping and maritime industries.

“The idea of implementing this BETO Training Programme was sparked through the ICP Strategic Document (ISD) for the maritime industry that was developed by TDA in 2016. Through the development and implementation of this program, TDA has outlined a strategy to develop human capital that focuses on creating a quality workforce with skilled workers through specific training programs based on industry demand which will ultimately improve the ability and capacity of the nation’s maritime industry,” said Dr Sharoul Jambari, TDA’s Chief Executive Officer.

Since 2017, new competency standards and certifications have been introduced and become mandatory thus creating a need for qualified electro-technical officers to be placed in the shipping industry. Due to the lack of skilled local manpower as well, the country’s shipping industry is forced to hire about 7,193 or 46 percent of foreign seafarers to comply with these international requirements.

This programme which started in 2018 has involved more than 60 participants sponsored by MARA. To date, a total of 45 certified electro-technical officers have graduated and successfully settled and continued their careers in the shipping industry with a gross income exceeding RM30,000 per month. The BETO 2.0 Training Programme that was officiated today is a continuation of the previous three intakes by giving the opportunity to 60 new participants and has opened its participation to all.

“The BETO Training Programme has not only improved the skills and marketability of local graduates, but has also opened up opportunities for lucrative income returns while also helping to improve the country’s socioeconomics,” said Mr. Nordin Mohamadin, Deputy Director General (Planning), JLM.

“Not only that, this programme is also expected to help JLM in achieving the target of producing 1,000 graduates to meet the needs of the local shipping industry while empowering the Malaysian maritime industry,” he added.
