Facilitating exchanges on cyber norms
Finally, Singapore believes that it is high time for ASEAN to start its own dialogues on cyber norms.
In this aspect, the city-state will "work with fellow Member States and Dialogue Partners to develop a regional understanding of cyber norms and arrive at an ASEAN position", said Dr Yaacob.
"A set of regional cyber norms would ensure the safety and security of regional and international cyberspace, and in extension, contribute to the stability and economic progress of the ASEAN community," Dr Yaacob explained.
"Cyber capacity building, cyberspace awareness and cyber norms are Singapore's three suggestions to ASEAN for enhancing cybersecurity cooperation. With consensus, agreement and cooperation, we can make cyberspace a safer and secure place for all,"he concluded.
