Taiwan Building Cyber Resilience to Secure Democracy

During the recently held “Cyber Week 2023” international symposium in Israel, Taiwan’s Minister of Digital Affairs Audrey Tang was invited to present Taiwan’s experience protecting democracy against cyberattacks, offering helpful insights to the global cybersecurity community.

The Minister stressed the importance of interdisciplinary cooperation in defending democracy against foreign information manipulation and interference (FIMI). She urged collaboration among governments, organisations, and people to shape the Internet’s future while preserving human rights and promoting equal economic success.

Taiwan’s significant policies to promote cybersecurity for critical infrastructures and build digital resilience in the industry were introduced by Deputy Directors Zheng Xinming of the Administration for Cybersecurity of moda and Lin Junxiu of the Administration for Digital Industries of moda.

Taiwan’s industrial policies, according to Deputy Director Lin, include the promotion of international standards for semiconductor supply chain information security (SEMI E187), the implementation of a zero-trust framework, app cybersecurity testing, cybersecurity standards for chips and IoT, and the establishment of the Shalun Information Security Service Base. These projects highlight Taiwan’s strategy and achievements towards being a reliable partner in the global supply chain.

Taiwan has built an inter-ministerial information security joint defence framework based on the Cyber Security Management Act, according to Cheng. The country has made progress in safeguarding key infrastructure, performing field audits to ensure the efficiency of protection measures, and organising the Cyber Offence and Defence Exercise (CODE).

This exercise brings together cybersecurity specialists from many countries to participate in real-world scenarios, strengthening both sides’ security expertise and response skills while laying the groundwork for collaborative defence.

Minister Audrey also spoke at the “Building Cyber Resilience” conference about Taiwan’s efforts to develop a diversified and heterogeneous communication network. Taiwan wants to increase Internet cybersecurity and protection while increasing digital resilience by merging fixed terrestrial networks, wireless networks, underwater cables, satellites, and other communication techniques.

Building cyber resilience is more important than ever. The ability of an organisation to endure, adapt to, and quickly recover from cyber threats and incidents is referred to as cyber resilience. It entails putting in place strong security measures, cultivating a culture of cybersecurity awareness, and devising effective reaction and recovery methods.

Cyber dangers are changing and becoming more sophisticated all the time. Attackers use a variety of strategies to target individuals and organisations, including malware, phishing, ransomware, and social engineering. Building cyber resilience aids in mitigating these dangers by establishing proactive security measures, staying up to current on emerging attacks, and constantly strengthening defence systems.

Power grids, healthcare systems, transportation networks, and financial institutions are all significantly reliant on digital technologies. A cyber-attack on these industries might have catastrophic effects on public safety, national security, and economic stability. Building cyber resilience ensures the protection and continuous functioning of vital infrastructure by decreasing vulnerabilities and the impact of prospective assaults.

Data breaches can have serious implications, including financial losses, reputational harm, and abuses of privacy. Building cyber resilience entails putting in place strong data security mechanisms such as encryption, access controls, and secure data storage. Individuals and organisations can preserve confidence with consumers, partners, and stakeholders by prioritising data integrity and privacy.

Building cyber resilience is critical in today’s digital landscape. It defends key infrastructure, protects against changing cyber threats, maintains data integrity and privacy, improves national security, mitigates economic losses, protects democratic processes, and encourages international collaboration. Individuals, organisations, and governments can negotiate the complex and ever-changing cyber threat landscape with greater confidence and resilience by investing in cyber resilience.
