YDH Dato’ Sri Noor Rashid B. Ibrahim, Deputy Inspector General of police in Malaysia since 2014, previously headed the Bukit Aman Narcotic Criminal Investigation Department.

IFSEC Southeast Asia has great supporters
ASPSA, which also has chapters in India, China, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand, among other Asian nations, is a prominent supporter of IFSEC Southeast Asia.
Gerry Dunphy, Event Director of IFSEC and FIREX International, comments: “We’re looking forward to welcoming three highly influential and respected figures from the world’s fastest-growing economic region to IFSEC International in June. Since moving to London two years ago we’ve seen a surge in international visitors from outside the UK and beyond Europe, as well as a huge increase in the number of senior decision-makers and influential government officials. This latest news very much fits both these trends.”
