In order to build stronger responses against cyber-attacks in the APAC region, Microsoft has recently announced the development of a cyber-security council for the public sector.
The Asia Pacific Public Sector Cyber-security Executive Council involves the policy makers and influencers from Indonesia, Korea, Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, and Thailand. It aims to accelerate collaboration between public and private cyber-security firms.
According to Microsoft, “Cyber threats and attacks are inevitable in this interconnected world, which is why our collective strength and collaboration as a community is imperative. [This is] the first step towards defending our communities in cyberspace with the founding members that include government leaders, policymakers, regulators, industry stakeholders across the region.”
