    [Yeah it reads like the writer just read the press release and made a
    story around it, but how often do you hear any news about information
    security and Malaysian police officers?   - WK]
    Ahnlab.com, an anti-virus software maker, said yesterday that it has
    won a contract worth 100 million won to implement online security
    education for Malaysian police officers.
    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
    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.
