The National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) has received the 2019 Security Protection Special Award (AKKP) in recognition of its governance in security protection which achieved the Excellence (Five Stars) rating.
The award was presented by Kuala Lumpur Chief Government Security Office (CGSO) director Syarifuddin Palawa to PTPTN chief executive Ahmad Dasuki Abdul Majid at Menara PTPTN here on Dec 18, which was streamed live on the corporation’s Facebook page.
In a statement today, PTPTN said it remained committed to providing security protection not only on documentation and assets but also employees and customers by providing a safe working environment in accordance with the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994.
“This proves that PTPTN is always committed to practising the best governance in ensuring security protection in terms of physical security, document safety and information confidentiality especially official secret documents and personal security.
“It is also to prevent security breaches such as leakage, theft and unauthorised access,” he said.
Meanwhile, Syarifuddin said the rating was given based on the Security Protection Inspectorate programme in PTPTN which evaluated four criteria, namely, public security, physical security, document security and personal security.
“PTPTN is one out of 10 departments and agencies in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur to achieve a five-star rating,” he added.
The AKKP programme, implemented by the Prime Minister’s Department’s GCSO, aimed at recognising the best governance among government departments and agencies besides fostering a culture of security protection among civil servants and at the same time encouraging government departments to compete healthily to achieve the highest recognition.
