News: Fighting For The Safety Of Women At The Capital Of Creation

Mar 14, 2019

The town of Cyberjaya has long been at the forefront of Malaysia’s technology and innovation drive as it is the core location of the country’s Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) initiative.

As the master developer of Cyberjaya, Setia Haruman Sdn Bhd has been working with various stakeholders to enhance the liveability of the city which includes improving the safety and security of its residents.

Setia Haruman Chief Operating Officer Wendy Li affirmed the company’s commitment to promote and develop Cyberjaya as a global tech hub that serves the growing needs of its population.

“Currently, 60% of data centres in Malaysia are based in Cyberjaya, along with more than 40,000 knowledge workers and 506 MSC-status companies. The majority of Cyberjaya’s working population is active around the clock in order to accommodate the different time zones served by these companies.”

Wendy stressed that the “safety and security of Cyberjaya citizens are a high-level priority and a collective effort of the respective stakeholders in Cyberjaya.” The emphasis on safety is due to the large number of workers in Cyberjaya who are required to work in night shifts due to the nature of their professions.

Kayathri Maheswaren, aged 35, has been working at an international information technology services company in Cyberjaya for more than nine years.

“I feel that night shifts are no longer a concern among employees like myself. The DTS bus system is very convenient for commuters who live in other parts of the Klang Valley and there are plenty of food outlets available, quite a number of which open till late at night. Even for those who are driving home or to work at night, the streets are brightly lit and well-patrolled by the police.”

On its way to achieving its target of becoming a crime-free city, Cyberjaya is also backed by an efficient safety ecosystem, with the fully integrated Malaysian Emergency Response System (MERS) 999 CCTV system first launched in 2009. The city contains more than 30 cameras spread across high traffic locations.


The ‘Wonder Women of Cyberjaya’ – Celebrating the Women Changemakers of the City

Setia Haruman

In conjunction with International Women’s Day, Setia Haruman is releasing a video series called the ‘Wonder Women of Cyberjaya’, which showcases stories of women from different occupations who are making a positive impact to the city and its people. These ‘Wonder Women’ range from general office workers, managers and civil servants, to entrepreneurs, students and homemakers.

Speaking of the active representation of women in Cyberjaya, Wendy highlighted that women have always been a driving force in transforming Cyberjaya into the progressive city that it is today.

“There are approximately 60,000 women living or working in Cyberjaya. All of them are champions of their own accord. We have exceptional corporate mommies who juggle career and family, tireless law enforcement officers who help ensure the safety and wellbeing of the community, and students who regard the city as their hub for creative and educational excellence.”
