In conjunction with the Cyber Security Awareness Month observed globally, KPMG in Malaysia organized a series of cyber literacy sessions involving over 1,800 students at the primary and secondary level within the Klang Valley.
This community initiative is an effort to raise awareness on the importance of cyber security and online safety for students as part of KPMG’s corporate citizenship focus on Quality Education and Lifelong Learning.

Today, bullies have moved from the corner of the playground to the world wide web, making it imperative that our next generation are well-equipped to deal with threats that could be lurking on the internet. We want to cultivate a good cybersecurity mindset within the future generations in this digitally-enabled world,” Alvin explained.
