Since then, the pandemic has become global. The pandemic spread rapidly between countries and affected almost every community in many ways. This shows that it especially affects politics, economy, health, culture, education and technology.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This study claims that the policy and strategy, economic sector, health sector, education and training and technologies of Türkiye and England were adversely affected during the pandemic period and that countries developed cyber security policies for these elements. This study highlights that lockdowns, quarantines and other preventive measures have far-reaching effects on the political and economic well-being of countries around the world, including Türkiye and England. In addition, this study analyzes and provides an overview of the Turkish and British governments’ response to COVID-19 in terms of cybersecurity policies, in order to demonstrate the far-reaching and potentially long-term consequences of the virus on the future of countries.</p> 2023-10-01T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 MALAYSIA'S EFFORT TO STRENGTHEN CYBERSECURITY INTERVIEW WITH ASST.

Malaysia, refusing to be left behind, aims to restart and rejuvenate its socioeconomic development for long-term sustainability and prosperity by restructuring the economy as the foundation in improving the wellbeing of the people. Central to the agenda of the economy is the strengthening of the country’s digital economy. With an accelerated digital technology adoption both at public and private sectors, extending the effect of digitalization to organizational and individual lives.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Meanwhile, it is axiomatic that enhancing national security and unity is a game-changer for nation-building. The need for these national objectives cannot be over-emphasised in the context of digital economy, because the nation will ultimately face those challenges and we shall come prepared. It is important to remind that in the context of digital economy, cyber security stands out as a prerequisite for Malaysia to enjoy a secured, trusted and resilient cyberspace for everyone. A comprehensive national effort for enhancing our cyber security is crucial, so that we can make the best of the digital economy and eliminate all those risks that will threaten our digital sustainability. This paper stands to remind that for the nations and governments to sustain this digital realm, having a nationally-coordinated effort towards the security of its critical information infrastructure is a necessity instead of luxury.</p> 2023-10-01T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023 DO ALIENS PERFORM CYBER- ATTACKS ON GLOBAL NETWORK? 2023-10-01T00:58:29+03:00 Nezir AKYEŞİLMEN <p>The possibility of aliens organizing cyberattacks on our global network is a complex one. There is no evidence that Aliens have ever launched a cyber-attack against us, but there is also no way to know for sure whether they have launched any or not, at least for now? We have also no idea about their technological capacity and capability. Indeed, we are also even not sure about their existence, except for some allegations</p> 2023-10-01T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2023
