In a signing ceremony in Kuala Lumpur, the company's overseas marketing chief Hwang Hyo-hyun and Malaysian police director Dato Yusof announced the deal, Ahnlab.com said. The 10-week education program is part of the Malaysian national police force's plan to fight cyber-crimes. They hope to build skills and to increase facility investments needed to protect computer networks. The company said that the curriculum has classes across four categories: building a system of information security, understanding online security technologies, the use of cracking tools and an actual practice session in fighting cyber terrorism. In addition, Ahnlab will provide Malaysian police with improved cracking-protection technologies this autumn. ``Malaysia is at the helm of rapid growth in the information-technology industry, but online security is still in the canvassing stage,'' Hwang said, adding that the deal would offer an opportunity to pre-empt the Malaysian information security software market. The company posted 7 billion won in revenues over the first three months this year, up 180 percent from the 2.5 billion won a year earlier. Second- quarter results are not audited yet, the company official said. - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
