Deputy Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation Datuk Fadillah Yusuf said as more people begin using the Internet, issues and threats — ranging from spam to identity theft to cyber bullying — will rise as well.

In 2009, the number of cybersecurity incidents rose 68 percent, from 2,123 incidents in 2008 to 3,564 incidents, Fadilah said. Last year, that percentage grew by 127 percent, from 3,564 incidents in 2009 to 8,090 total incidents, he added.

Located north of Australia, the island of Borneo is divided among three countries: Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia.
