Abstract

As different types of cyberattacks are on the rise, cybersecurity threats are also growing rapidly. Most countries including developing countries in the Asia-Pacific region are at risk in cyberspace. And more than ever, cybersecurity vulnerabilities in government and critical information infrastructure are becoming sources of risks to national security, public safety and economic prosperity. Since most critical infrastructures including electricity generation facilities, financial services, hospitals, transportation systems and water supply services are all increasingly dependent on information and communication technologies (ICTs) to function and deliver services efficiently, cyberattacks on these critical infrastructures may result in serious national security risks.
