To foster more digital cooperation between Taiwan and Europe, Minister Audrey Tang of the Ministry of Digital Affairs (moda) met with a delegation from the European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs (AFET) Committee. They had in-depth discussions about topics like cyber security cooperation and digital resilience.

According to Minister Audrey, Taiwan is a crucial ally in the global democratic movement, protecting other democratic nations from authoritarian regime threats. Hence, the moda actively carries out its mandate, “Cyber security is national security,” by proactively averting risks, thwarting attacks, and developing a cross-domain unified defence system that is simple to protect and challenging to breach.

Likewise, Minister Audrey brought up the ongoing “Enhancing Digital Resilience Verification Project for Communication Networks in Emergency or Wartime Application of Emerging Technologies,” which intends to verify whether an asynchronous satellite can function as an emergency backup network.

To test features like video conferencing, internet telephony, live streaming systems, and two-way or multi-way communication, the plan calls for the establishment of 700 domestic satellite stations and three international stations. This will ensure the reliable transmission of urgent commands and emergency evacuation information.

The Minister elaborated on the implementation of web3 architecture, including the “InterPlanetary File System” (IPFS), enabling decentralised methods to avoid website tampering, using the official website of moda as an example.

To significantly improve Taiwan’s cybersecurity resilience, the ministry also strengthens protection for critical infrastructure, encourages public-private cooperation in joint defence, conducts cross-border real combat and defence exercises, and swiftly implements the “Never Trust, Always Verify” zero-trust framework within government agencies.

In addition, Minister Audrey also had a meeting with the recently appointed Eun-ho Lee of the Korean Mission in Taiwan to discuss future digital and industrial cooperation between Taiwan and Korea. They had in-depth discussions about issues like increasing public awareness of cybersecurity and promoting industry innovation through chip technology. Both parties emphasised their hopes for greater cooperation between Taiwan and Korea in cybersecurity defence and digital resilience.

According to the Minister, Taiwan is actively encouraging digital transformation across a range of industries and is looking forward to ongoing discussions with Korea on problems related to digital governance and communication resilience. The goal is to boost cybersecurity defence and further deepen digital cooperation.

Minister Audrey also discussed moda’s efforts to promote cybersecurity measures. The ministry makes use of cutting-edge technology, including artificial intelligence (AI), to actively thwart threats, identify and stop the sources of attacks, and improve the security of vital infrastructure.

The nation’s cybersecurity capabilities are fundamentally improved by reinforcing practical exercises and implementing a zero-trust architecture, which results in a cross-domain defence system that is simple to protect but challenging to breach.

The Minister pointed out that Taiwan and Korea have comparable industrial structures, are both major producers of semiconductors and place a strong priority on chip-driven industry innovation. The primary technology development in the semiconductor supply chain is handled by the Administration for Digital Industries under moda.

It builds experimental areas, transfers research and development technology to businesses, and helps organisations get security certifications from global standard institutions. It also links local businesses, universities and research capacities.
