Large volumes of customer information, financial data, and intellectual property are frequently handled by enterprises. To protect this data’s integrity and confidentiality against theft, breaches, or unauthorised access, effective cybersecurity measures are crucial.

Minister Audrey Tang joined forces with representatives from the Ministry of Digital Affairs (moda) and the National Institute for Cyber Security (NICS) to take part in the exercise and practise hacking and defence with 10 private enterprise cybersecurity teams. The exercise served as the Taiwan Computer Network Crisis Response and Coordination Center’s (TWCERT/CC) first enterprise information security exercise.

It displayed the support and dedication of senior management to information security protection, which is the cornerstone of guaranteeing the security of company information and communicated the significance of cybersecurity protection to firms through actual activities.

The Ministry of Information Technology (MIT) directed the TWCERT/CC to plan and organise Cyber Drill based on the experience of participating in the Asia Pacific Computer Emergency Response Team (APCERT) in previous years. This was done to improve the ability of businesses to detect and respond to hackers in an instant manner and to build a strong cybersecurity joint defence fortress in Taiwan.

The TWCERT/CC organised the “Cyber Drill 2023” for the first time. The five major telecommunications providers and five high-tech businesses were asked by the TWCERT/CC to take part in the exercise.

To maintain the functionality of their information and communications systems, the teams had to make use of the limited information that was made available during the event to detect the signs of the hackers, carry out contingency planning, and block the hacker attacks. Along with a group of colleagues from the moda and the NICS, Minister Tang took part in the event and spoke with the teams from private businesses.

The moda hopes that by participating in this event, the teams will gain knowledge of security attacks and defences and grow in self-assurance while dealing with constantly evolving security risks. Dealing with cybersecurity incidents through partnerless cybersecurity defence is ineffective. TWCERT / CC is anticipated to host another cybersecurity exercise in the fourth quarter to urge businesses to take part in cybersecurity drills. Enterprises that are interested are encouraged to sign up as soon as feasible.

The moda made the point that Taiwan’s national security places a high priority on cybersecurity challenges because of geographic and political considerations. Since its founding last year, the moda has actively promoted the adoption of Zero Trust Architecture and the Cross-Authority Data Transmission Specialised Channel (T-Road) in the public sector based on the governmental doctrine that “information security is national security.”

Additionally, the moda has been advising providers of Critical Infrastructure (CI) to improve cybersecurity resilience in compliance with the Information and Communications Security Management Act (ICMA).

The moda has consistently provided financing for the Taiwan Network Information Centre (TWNIC) to run the TWCERT/CC to help private businesses that aren’t governed by the ICMA improve their capability for cybersecurity defence.

The TWCERT/CC increases the capability of private firms and acts as Taiwan’s point of contact for international cybersecurity organisations. It also integrates the resources of both local and foreign cybersecurity organisations. Additionally, it offers free, first-hand information about domestic and international cybersecurity to businesses. The organisation can alert the TWCERT/CC, consult with it for free, and request assistance in the event of a cybersecurity problem.
