First Asia Pacific Public Sector Cyber Security Executive Council Launched by Microsoft

First Asia Pacific Public Sector Cyber Security Executive Council Launched by Microsoft

The Asia Pacific region experiences a higher than average encounter rate for malware and ransomware (approximately 1.6 to 1.7 times higher than rest of the world). To tackle this menace, Microsoft has launched APAC region’s very first Asia Pacific Public Sector Cyber Security Executive Council, which will bring to the table a mix of policy makers from public and private sector to build an effective communication channel to address cyber threats and share best practices from multiple countries.

The council has 15 policy makers from Brunei, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand, supported by cybersecurity professionals from Microsoft. These policy makers will help accelerate public-private partnerships in cybersecurity.

“The cybersecurity executive council is an instrumental platform for collaboration between our nations. I believe with the stronger relationships we will forge via this council will enable us to anticipate threats as early as possible, prevent them before the effects of cybercrime evolves into another “pandemic” for the cyberworld,” said Group Captain Amorn Chomchoey, Acting Deputy Secretary General, National Cybersecurity Agency Thailand.

The council aims to build a community in APAC that shares threat intelligence, technology, and resources in an open manner. The council will meet on a quarterly basis to maintain the exchange of information on cybersecurity threats and solutions.
