ASEAN: Cybersecurity in the spotlight

Cybersecurity came into focus at the 32nd ASEAN Meeting Summit held in Singapore from 26–28 April 2018. At the end of the Summit, Singapore, as the chair of ASEAN in 2018, released a statement which underlined the addition of cybersecurity in ASEAN’s agenda. This is in light of the recognition of the growing urgency and sophistication of transboundary cyberthreats. States are asked to consider and recommend feasible options of coordinating cybersecurity issues.​
