Microsoft's Asia-Pacific cyber security council to unite policy makersWednesday, June 02, 2021 > 12:43:32
Microsoft has announced the creation of an Asia-Pacific cyber security council in a bid to improve communications between the public and private sector when it comes to dealing with cyber threats and implementing best practices.
The council, which is set to meet virtually on a quarterly basis, is made up of 15 policy makers from Brunei, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand, as well as Microsoft and its cyber security advisors from across the technology industry.
The forum will include best practice workshops and hands-on lab sessions, as well as seminars on how to improve digital skills across any given workforce in a bid to reduce the talent gap in the cyber security sector.
The council will also seek to build on existing efforts to strengthen cyber security partnerships in the Asia-Pacific region, such as the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and Global Forum on Cyber Expertise.
