Canadian software company BlackBerry has opened a new Centre of Excellence in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The new centre will deliver cybersecurity training and cyber threat intelligence. The move will help Malaysia and other countries in the region step up their prevention, deterrence and response efforts to cyber threats facing governments and organisations.

In addition, the Centre of Excellence will help the country address a reported shortfall of around 12,000 cybersecurity experts.

Malaysia’s Prime Minister, YAB Dato’ Seri Anwar bin Ibrahim, said: “Being more than a facility to help train and upskill our national cyber workforce, the Cybersecurity Centre of Excellence has the potential to be an international destination to address emerging cyber threats. We can bring together Malaysian and Canadian universities, research institutions and skilled practitioners to share knowledge, threat intelligence and jointly develop methods and strategies to strengthen national and regional cyber resilience.”

Last month, BlackBerry opened an Internet of Things Centre of Excellence in Hyderabad, India, spanning 2,787m², its largest research and development centre outside of Canada.

Launched in 1984, BlackBerry provides intelligence security software and services, and has a workforce of 3,200 employees in 30 countries.

BlackBerry CEO John Giamatteo added: “Building resilience to cyberattacks requires a whole-of-society effort. The new Cybersecurity Centre of Excellence stands as a testament to how nations and technology leaders can work together to address the dual challenge of cybercrime and skills shortages. We thank the governments of Malaysia and Canada, along with our industry partners, for joining us today as we open this world-class facility and launch the BlackBerry Cybersecurity Curriculum to support Malaysia’s goal to train a highly skilled national cybersecurity workforce to a global standard.”
