Hence, his vast experience and knowledge in security matters.
Lt Col Hardial has been directly and solely responsible for the planning and setting up of this entity which is the first of its kind in Malaysia. His vast planning and management experience has been invaluable for the management of the Company. In setting up the Royal Safe Deposit Box, he took many years of intensive research and consultations with experts from prominent high security companies and some of the leading safe deposit box service providers in Australia, United Kingdom, India and Singapore to name a few to ensure that his company provides facilities that exceed existing Malaysian standards. What we have achieved moves the benchmark higher than anything seen before.
Hardy graduated from the University of London with an honours degree in Law and is an advocate & solicitor of the High Court of Malaya. He was admitted as an advocate & solicitor of the High Court of Malaya in 2002. He also holds a Diploma in Management from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) or the National University of Malaysia.
With a solid Military background, being directly involved in the management of very high risk weapons, bombs and explosives, Lieutenant Colonel Hardial is highly respected for his views and ideas on safety and security. His experience, knowledge and first hand expertise about safety and security is absolutely unrivalled in the field.
