Strengthening the Cybersecurity Communication Among Taiwan, U.S. industries

To deepen Taiwan-U.S. cybersecurity cooperation and to boost cybersecurity awareness in the growing 5G and AIoT sectors, the Department of International Cooperation (ICD) and the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) examined Cybersecurity Strategy for 5G-AIoT Industry. Seven experts from various sectors covered a range of topics from supply chains and big data to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning.

Government-to-government and private sector cooperation between Taiwan and the U.S. in the field of cybersecurity has been well-developed. In addition, the two sides signed a joint declaration on 5G wireless communications networks security. Cybersecurity threats stemming from 5G infrastructure and services include potential risks to supply chains and key infrastructure, so cybersecurity will be key to rapidly promoting the combining of the AIoT and 5G sectors.

Furthermore, Taiwan is renowned for its hardware manufacturing, and the U.S. is a global leader in cybersecurity software technology, so combining these strengths and enhancing Taiwan-U.S cybersecurity exchanges will be a focus of future industry development.

AIT stressed the importance of cooperation between Taiwan and the U.S. and also encouraged Kaohsiung to develop Asia New Bay Area into a smart city equipped with 5G and AIoT technology. Taiwan and the U.S. need constant and vigorous efforts to develop effective cybersecurity defences against potential network attacks on key infrastructure providers and advanced process manufacturers.

Asia New Bay Area has become a Taiwan high-tech industry corridor and a testbed for 5G-AIoT technology and applications. The municipal government has also been actively promoting smart city development and focusing on the development of the cybersecurity sector, including concerning issues surrounding IoT equipment, autonomous vehicles and enterprise resource planning, with emphasis on reducing cybersecurity risks to business operations.

Experts from cybersecurity firms shared their insights regarding countering cybersecurity threats, such as concerning establishing risk management structures, adopting effective strategies against supply chain attacks, and blocking ransomware intrusions with zero-trust architecture. All these strategies require constant adjustment and revision according to the latest cybersecurity technology and external threats to ensure maximum protection against potential cyberattacks.

Following the U.S. government’s launch of the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification framework late last year, Taiwan has taken the lead in planning a similar mechanism to assess the cybersecurity maturity of Taiwan firms to assist them in meeting cybersecurity standards and serving as trusted supply chain partners delivering reliable products and services.

5G and AIoT are both key areas of Taiwan-U.S. industry cooperation. It is expected that through bilateral cybersecurity cooperation and industrial technology exchanges, more southern Taiwan sectors, when developing 5G-AIoT, will be able to enhance their cybersecurity capabilities and establish long-term cooperative relationships based on mutual trust and interdependence through the Taiwan-U.S. connection.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, 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. 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.
