Strengthening Information Security in Taiwan

Deputy Minister of Digital Affairs Lee Huai-Jen recently said that problems with information security that involve the leakage of personal information should be reported right away to the Taiwan Computer Emergency Response Team/Coordination Centre (TWCERT/CC).

According to the Personal Data Protection Act, each designated business’s “competent authority” oversees keeping private sector information safe, and if there are any security breaches or cyber incidents, the responsible party must tell the “competent authority.”

With this, the Taiwan Network Information Centre administers the TWCERT/CC, which acts as a hub for reporting and coordinating cyber security issues in the private sector. It also gives advice and other services related to corporate information security incidents.

The Ministry of Digital Affairs (MoDA) is promoting Zero Trust Architecture and the T-Road standard for unified transmission of government data to stop problems with personal data and information security in the public sector.

Deputy Minister Lee also said that the T-Road standard should be fully-added to the Zero Trust Architecture triple verification system within a year. After consultation, T-Road will be put into place first for A-level agencies that handle a lot of personal information. B-level agencies and cities and counties will be put in place order.

Hence, the MoDA has called a meeting with industry associations to ask for more attention to the information security of the transaction system and to offer help and subsidies to the media security industry. This is to support testing in the industry and improve information security. Even though the government’s steps to protect information security and personal data are effective and enough, the MoDA reminded the private sector to stay alert and use every chance to improve protection.

Meanwhile, the National Communications Commission (NCC), with help from the Ministry of Digital Affairs, has also approved the mergers of four telecom companies in Taiwan. As soon as the Fair Trade Commission gives its approval, the entities will file with the Securities and Futures Bureau under the Financial Supervisory Commission and register corporate changes with the Ministry of Economic Affairs.

According to the MoDA, the merger of the major mobile carriers is a big step forward in making sure that resources are used wisely and that the telecommunications industry grows in a healthy way. The Ministry said that there was always close communication and cooperation with the NCC during the merger process. It also said that ministry officials gave expert opinions at commission hearings.

The goal of the ministry’s consultations was to get written opinions on the most important issues that the NCC had pointed out and to talk about specific ways to handle the merger after the bandwidth available to the parties involved went over the legal limit.

According to the Telecommunications Management Act, telcos have to change their operating and network setup plans if they need to, and they also have to ask the MODA to renew their radio frequency use certificates. They also must finish processing the extra bandwidth by the time the guidance letter says they have to.

The ministry said that they would do everything they could to make it easy for the NCC and them to talk and work together on the merger. It will also help and support the completion of the procedures outlined so that the telecommunications industry can grow in a healthy way.
