With the innovations brought about by the pandemic and with geopolitical tensions rising, cybersecurity has been THE watchword for 2022. More than this, cyber security awareness training has been in everyone's daily vocabulary - from senior specialists and officials to end user staff and ordinary citizens.
So how can you strike a balance between technologies that boost the growth of communities while making sure data protections are in place? A review of activities in the public and private sectors indicates that achieving this balance is on everyone's agenda at the moment.
March 2022 cyber security roundup
The Australian Government announced an investment of $9.9 billion to increase the country’s intelligence and cybersecurity capabilities (Source: IT Brief). This is to improve the Australian Defence Force’s (ASD’s) current cybersecurity capabilities as well to assist small businesses in their digital transformation.
Meanwhile, the New Zealand Information Security Manual (NZISM) released updated essential information on cyber security best practices (Source: OpenGovAsia). Some notable changes include up-to-date advice for agencies using cloud services, especially for ICT agencies responsible for creating cloud adoption strategies and guidance on adopting cloud-native security services.
In the Philippines, the Asia Foundation and Secure Connections virtually launched the first-ever comprehensive review of cybersecurity governance (Source: AsiaFoundation). The review traces the history and changing nature of internet policies and the cybersecurity posture of other countries. These inform recommended measures like identifying security gaps within local government data sets and creating a cybersecurity culture through educational institutions.
