Southeast Asian cyber security centre opens in Thailand

BANGKOK (Sept 14): A cyber security centre opened in Thailand on Friday to train personnel from countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to help combat cyber threats in the attack-prone region.

The idea of the ASEAN-Japan Cyber Security Capacity Building Centre came from a meeting between ASEAN and Japan's ministers in Cambodia last year.

About 700 cybersecurity personnel from Southeast Asia are expected to graduate from the Japan-designed programmes, which include cyber defence, digital forensics and malware analysis.
