ASEAN-India summit focuses on improving cyber security platform

ASEAN-India summit focuses on improving cyber security platform

The 2nd ASEAN-India dialogue summit on cyber issues held virtually mainly focused on the cyber domain's cooperation and security in the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has hit the world and has completely changed the scenario of day-to-day life. It has accelerated the digitization and cyberization of engagements such as work from home that has become a new norm. The social media presence has increased, which in turn has led to an increase in cyber-attacks.

Therefore the summit held mainly focused on the interconnectedness, the dangers related to cybercrime. Vijay Thakur Singh, Secretary of External Affairs Ministry, stated that "increased dependence on digital technologies has created both pressure and opportunities for creative policy solutions and regional collaboration to foster a secure, resilient, and equitable cyberspace."

Given the lurking dangers involved with it, the Government has enhanced the need to formulate and implement measures for securing cyber domain from malicious hackers. The Indian initiative is set to tackle the situation with flagship Digital India Program-Pradhan Mantri Grameen Digital Shaksharta Abhiyan and National Cyber Security Strategy 2020 for the next five years. ASEAN also has come up with its own sets of solutions to curb the cybercrimes.
