Abstract

Cyber threats have been characterised as the Asia-Pacific’s chief security problem. As Information and Communications Technology (ICT) dependence has continued to permeate Asia-Pacific societies, the significance of securing cyberspace has increasingly been recognised by regional authorities. Though efforts remain at ‘varying levels of maturity’, the development and implementation of domestic cyber security strategies has become a top priority for many Asia-Pacific nations. A number of countries in the region have already adopted new cyber security policies, including Australia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and the New Zealand. The rapidly increasing sophistication, diversity and ingenuity of cyber threats in the region has meant that such policies must remain dynamic and responsive.
