In the face of ever-increasing cybersecurity threats and privacy breaches, the importance of digital safety has never been more critical. Cybercriminals, with their sophisticated tactics, prey not only on individuals but also on educational institutions, corporations, and government bodies, introducing a broad spectrum of risks to our online safety.
Stepping forward to reinforce digital security, INTI International University & Colleges has proudly taken the initiative to become the first to endorse the Digital Safety Pledge through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Communications and Multimedia Content Forum of Malaysia (Content Forum), a respected self-regulatory organisation affiliated with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC). This agreement highlights INTI’s commitment to enhancing online security for its academic community.
The MoU signing took place on October 20 at the INTI International College Subang campus, with Dr. Jane Lim, who is Vice President of Academic Support & Partnership at INTI International University & Colleges and Chief Executive of INTI International College Subang, joining hands with Kenny Ong, Chairman of the Content Forum. The signing marks a crucial step in advancing digital safety and upholding academic integrity.

Dr. Jane Lim shared her excitement about the partnership, remarking, “This event marks an important stride towards academic distinction. It reflects our resolve in forging valuable collaborations with industry pioneers such as Content Forum, who are instrumental in shaping the futures of our students.”
She continued, “Our mission is to nurture a learning space that not only equips our students with knowledge but also encourages its wise application. It’s about cultivating a digital landscape that benefits individuals far and wide.”
Kenny Ong emphasised the significance of the alliance, saying, “Teaming up with INTI is vital for creating comprehensive curricula and engaging in workshops, discussions, and forums. We put great stock in the knowledge from their thorough research and the extensive papers they contribute. The students, at the forefront of new trends, are an invaluable resource for us.”
He stressed, “Our focus is on meticulously shaping the Content Code and the publishing sector to reflect Malaysian values, not just individual preferences. We are immensely proud of the MoU with INTI, as it holds great promise for the betterment of coming generations.”
This partnership not only signifies a commitment to a safer and more ethically conscious digital world but also sets a precedent for protecting future generations in the ever-changing digital landscape.
