Cambodia has become a part of film spot interested by the foreign filmmakers?. If you used to watch 'TRANSFORMERS 3 : Dark side of the moon', you would notice that part of the movie was shot at Angkor temple. Not only this foreign movie but also other ones such as Lara Croft : Tomb Raider, Almayer's Folly, Same Same But Different, The Sea Wall, City of Ghosts, Holy Lola, Two Brothers, R Point etc., according to The Cambodia Film Commission.
Recently, the number of local films have been produced more and more, and in those there is also action movie category, and I think that the action films gaining more popular nationwide among other categories but it still faced some challenges on finding the stunt team to support.

The First Ever Nodojiman Grand Championships Contest

It’s happened to many of us – at home and at work – when we want to save that extra photo, video file or important document and find that our computer, tablet or smartphone has run out of storage space.

For those of us who keep up to date on technological developments, we know that one relatively new solution to this frustration is using the ‘cloud’ to store our documents, files and business applications – enabling us to access them anywhere, any time, on any device.

Until now, the ‘cloud’ has been the exclusive domain of giant, global computing firms who have the infrastructure to support the massive amounts of storage needed to run a ‘cloud’ computing operation.

But thanks to its cutting edge technology, and its responsiveness to its customer’s demands, Cambodia’s leading internet company, EZECOM, will soon launch ibizCloud - a “Made in Cambodia” solution to the growing problem of IT capacities in our data-rich lives.

ibizCloud, a joint venture with Hong Kong telecoms giant Hutchison Global Communications, is initially aimed at the business market, offering an alternative to expensive on-site data management.

EZECOM will work with businesses to assess their data needs and IT requirements and then converge virtual, off-site data storage and management system – based in Cambodia, managed by Cambodians and still meeting all the strictest international security standards.


“Many businesses and IT managers are aware of cloud computing and the advantages it brings. But many are put off by the price tag from the global giants and the lack of face-to-face support from companies in the US or in Europe,” says Sok Yeng, Value Added Services Product Manager at EZECOM.

“ibizCloud is based in Cambodia and we understand Cambodian businesses so this will help ease any worries that businesses here have about using cloud computing – knowing that we are there, in person, to support them with their data management and storage,” says Sok Yeng.
The launch of ibizCloud comes at the start of a busy 2015 for EZECOM, which aims to build on its leading position as Cambodia’s number one internet and data services provider by being the first company in Cambodia to bring ashore a submarine fiber optic cable that will dramatically increase the internet bandwidth available and reliability to Cambodian internet users.

Now you can access your storage from anywhere, anytime and on any devices! ibizCloud's service provides you with:
  • Cloud Available Globally
  • Pioneer To On-demand VLL Service
  • Cloud-to-Cloud Private MPLS Connect
  • Defferent Tier Connectivity
  • Pay-as-you-go Charging Scheme
  • Fast Provisioning of Services
The slogan for this service "International Quality, Local Service".

Will Cambodian businesses support this made-in-Cambodia cloud service?
Personally, we have to support for this initiative idea and it is good opportunity to try and trust in term of support and quality.

ibizCloud - Cambodia's First Cloud Service

Screen shot from WebChlaat's website
In today technology, the 21st century - era of Social Media and Cloud Computing - where we are living in connecting to one another thru ease of technology no matter where you stay, we can keep in touch each. To stay away from those internal or external cyber threats, we must learn how to stay safe online for those children and parents.

Seeing that Ezecom, Cambodia’s leading internet service provider, will soon launch WebChlaat - an online guide for children and their parents to help children enjoy the internet while staying safe from cyber bullying and inappropriate content, according to the company's news.

WebChlaat” or ‘WebSmart” is a seven tip guide prepared by Ezecom in association with leading child rights advocacy groups Friends International and ChildSafe, which recently certified Ezecom as Cambodia’s first ChildSafe company.

Ezecom will be running a live banner on the CEN website (http://www.cen.com.kh/) in the next weeks – providing daily internet safety tips and a link to the WebChlaat site at http://webchlaat.com/.

Among the safety tips for children: be smart when making online friends, be smart what you share on the internet and be smart about emails from strangers.

For parents the tips include: be smart and prepared to answer tough questions, be smart about anti-virus software and be smart about cyber bullying and its consequences.

“As a parent myself of course I want my children to enjoy the learning opportunities, entertainment and other resources that the internet offers. But its important that we help parents and children talk openly about some of the dangers that lurk out there on the internet, so that we can all benefit from the power of the internet without falling victim to the perils,” said Ezecom CEO Paul Blanche-Horgan.

The WebChlaat website underlines Ezecom’s long term commitment to supporting education and children’s rights.

The company’s staff was recently the first workforce to be certified as ‘Child Safe’ by Friends International and ChildSafe, meaning that staff have received training on being aware and alert to evidence of child abuse and how to respond appropriately.

CEHv8 Class in Cambodia Poster
CEH v8 Poster
For the past several years, information technology security was not a big concern for Cambodian business owner and CEO but current situation has been changed fast due to increasing number of local hackers and some foreign hackers who used to hack the governments' websites and local companies. By seeing so, SUNRISE Institute became an authorized partner of EC-Council in Cambodia where will organize the "Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Version 8", the world most popular IT security course conducting in 5 days on 12-16 May, 2014 from 8am-5:30pm at CKCC with approximated price $1,700 (it just estimated price only in Cambodia but outside this country, I think it may cost about $2,500).

What You Will Learn:
This class will immerse the students into an interactive environment where they will be shown how to scan, test, hack and secure their own systems. The lab intensive environment gives each student in-depth knowledge and practical experience with the current essential security systems. Students will begin by understanding how perimeter defenses work and then be lead into scanning and attacking their own networks, no real network is harmed. Students then learn how intruders escalate privileges and what steps can be taken to secure a system. Students will also learn about Intrusion Detection, Policy Creation, Social Engineering, DDoS Attacks, Buffer Overflows and Virus Creation. For more course outline, you can visit official EC-Council website.

EC-Council has globally trained more than 120,000 security professionals in 87 countries, and is a leading provider of IT Security certification and also actively engages and certify key government organizations and corporations worldwide.

Who Will Instruct You:
According to SUNRISE Institute's poster, the instructor will be from foreign country who has certified of CEH which recognized globally.

Who Will Attend this Course:
This course will significantly benefit security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators, and anyone who is concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure. Personally, I think there will be less student that can pay by their own fee based on the high price of the course for them to invest on learning. But I am sure that companies, especially from bank industries - where our money are kept, will send and pay for their staff to attend this very useful course.

What Benefits from the Course:
Individually, the participants who attended they will bring back to contribute to their employers and be security experts for improving our ICT, especially they have opportunity to apply for global certificate on The Certified Ethical Hacker exam 312-50.

Are you interested? If so, please contact SUNRISE Institute at: 023 997 282/ 016/099 997 282.

Note: This institute is also the first place that opens IT Governance course in IT Assurance & Security Audit for public.
I am not a promoter for the institute on this course, and I have shared it as for the good deeds in improving ICT in Cambodia ONLY.
Do You Know Who Is the First CEH Certified in Cambodia?
Before I had attended the IT Assurance & Security Audit class which lectured by Cambodian professional lecturer, I did not know the word "CEH" is, since then I started query who is the first Cambodian guy who got certified this world-top certificate. Finally, I found him a person who I often met as well. He, Mr. Yeng Sok, is the First Certified Ethical Hacker in Cambodia; I do appreciate his great earning the international certificate.

Don't let this opportunity go without you! And let's produce more human resources in Advanced IT level!

The First Khmer Zombie Movie "Run រត់"

Mr. Thet Chan Sothea
On Monday 24th of December 2012, NTV aired its final round of "Nodojiman Za! World 2012". It features amateur singers from across Japan who sing their hearts out before a nationwide audience, specifically for foreign residents who love singing J-Pop songs in Japanese.

Proudly, there's a Cambodian student who has a chance to be there along with getting back with the win!

Today around 2:00 pm, I met Cambodia representative and asked for short interview with related his presence during this event in Japan that I watched his performance on a video shared by a friend on Facebook, so it makes me feel proud to see him on the stage - that's a reason why I decide to share it here.
Do you know who is he, where he's from, why he has a chance to sing J-Pop song in Japan?
His name's Thet Chan Sothea who is pursuing his bachelor degree in The Japanese Language for Education in 4th year at Institute of Foreign Language (IFL), Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

What makes you be on NTV in Japan?
I was the first-prize winner of nationwide Nodojiman 2011 in Cambodia, that event organized by Embassy of Japan in Cambodia and CJCC, and then a local network of NTV in Cambodia found and contact me to sing in Japan. So the NTV network gave me three times to test my voice with other local winners, the number 2 & 3, and finally, I was selected to go to Japan. I have never thought I will be invited to sing in Japan such a chance!

How many do participants join?
There are 16 singers, from 12 nations (USA, France, Argentina, Norway, Australia, Italy, Romania, United Kingdom, Brazil, Turkey, Philippines  and Cambodia), who loves Japan and Japanese Music, and divided into four groups (A, B, C and D) with four participants each. The participant who gets the highest score in each group advances to the final round to compete against the other group winners. I am the first participant from Cambodia.

What do you feel when you are on the stage in Japan?
Yeah, before going up to the stage I met other participants from the 12 nations, I first feel not so compatible because it's my first time but other more times than me. What I am happy is to be warmly welcomed from all of them.
What I feel doubt is when the TV staffs asked me where I come from, and I told them I came from Cambodia; unfortunately, they seem they don't know our country unless I explain about the country where has Angkor Wat.

By the way, which country and who wins the prize?
Yes, there are only two countries, United Kingdom, Mr. Paul Ballard, and Cambodia, me. I got the Special Award/prize. To be easy to understand, he got the 1st prize, and I got the 2nd prize.

Check out the video below of Mr. Chan Sothea's performance:
