Taiwan Commits to Enhance Cybersecurity Industry

The President of Taiwan said that no stone is being left unturned in strengthening Taiwan’s cybersecurity industry in line with the goals and objectives of the government’s five-plus-two innovative industries plan. Cybersecurity is one of the most important of the six core strategic industries founded on the plan. This is evidenced by strong legislative support in the form of amendments to the National Security Act in 2019 and the passage of the Cybersecurity Management Act in 2018.

The number of cyberattacks is on the rise in Taiwan as malevolent actors seek to take advantage of an open internet and liberal social media environment. Left unchecked, the attempted theft of business-related data and intellectual property poses a threat to Taiwan’s freedom and democracy.

The government is responding to this challenge by integrating the development of cybersecurity, information and communication technology, the internet and telecommunications. In addition, a data-driven active defence system aimed at bolstering the resilience and security of Taiwan’s critical infrastructure is in the pipeline.

Taiwan is promoting a partnership between Taiwan’s public and private sectors, as well as like-minded partners in the international community. By sharing information, it is possible to efficiently and swiftly strengthen the country’s digital defences.

According to a page, to actively promote national cyber security policy, accelerate the establishment of the national cyber security environment, and enhance national competitiveness. After National Information and Communication Security Taskforce (NICST) was established, the “National Center for Cyber Security Technology, NCCST” was set up. The organisation aims to support NICST to establish the cyber security protection mechanism and provide technical services to government agencies, including prior-incident security protection, during-incident early warning and responses, and post-incident recoveries and forensics.

Since the establishment of NICST, our country has proactively led the government agencies to strengthen cyber security protection, which has achieved preliminary results in these years. However, cyber security requires long-term dedication. The goal is to enhance the overall cyber security defence capabilities and achieve the vision of “A Safety and Resilient Smart Nation” through four strategies listed below:

  • Attract high-level talents all over the world; cultivate independent power of research and innovation.
  • Promote public-private-partnership governance; enhance the resilience of critical infrastructure.
  • Utilise smart and forward-looking technologies; Proactively defend potential threats.
  • Complete an intelligent and secure society; boost non-governmental protection capabilities.

In response to Taiwan’s unique political and economic situation and global cyber security threats, it is urgent and necessary to continuously promote and implement cyber security tasks to respond to external challenges. Therefore, Taiwan formally established the Department of Cyber (DCS) to promote an overall national cyber security protection mechanism from the Yuan level; and led the national cyber security missions comprehensively with a team of dedicated professionals and special task forces.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, cybersecurity holds a significant impact on national security, public interest, national life, or economic activities. Enhancing the national security protection capacity, strengthening the security, and fostering resilience of basic communication networks are necessary.

Regarding the economy, various industries should incorporate cybersecurity protection thinking to form the basis of the united defence of government agencies and private enterprises. Hence, the awareness of cybersecurity will be deeply rooted in the mindset. To gradually enhance Taiwan’s cybersecurity protection capabilities, NICST proposed the National Cyber Security Programme of Taiwan (NCSP) as the reference guide for promoting cybersecurity protection strategy and plan.

Taiwan’s national cybersecurity policy has undergone systematic development and gradually achieved the scheduled milestones to effectively reinforce the readiness of national cybersecurity. The objectives include the establishment of a safe environment of cybersecurity, the completion of cybersecurity protection management, sharing of multiple cybersecurity information, the expansion of the cultivation of cybersecurity talent, and the reinforcement of international cybersecurity exchanges.
