This report by the National Information Security Center (NISC) focuses on steps to promote greater cooperation internationally on cyber security issues. The report calls inter alia for strengthened partnership and information sharing with the US in responding to the cyber threat and efforts to support capacity building among ASEAN nations.
This is the fourth in a series of reports released by the National Security Information Center (NISC). While earlier reports focused on the user concerns or the economic impact of the cyber threat, the emphasis in the new document is squarely on the national security implications of the threat.
