SINGAPORE, 21st October, 2022 (WAM) -- Minister of Public Security of Vietnam, General To Lam attended the Singapore International Cyber Week (SICW2022) from 18-20 October.
Within the framework of the SICW2022, Lam attended the seventh ASEAN Ministerial Conference on Cybersecurity.
At a plenary session of the conference, the minister said cybersecurity cooperation in ASEAN should be focused on promoting the awareness and actions in the 10-member grouping towards cybersecurity.
He reiterated Vietnam's commitments to further participating actively, pragmatically and effectively in intensifying ASEAN's efforts in handling challenges to cybersecurity.
Lam also urged ASEAN member countries to join hands to organise legal fora on cybersecurity in the bloc in order to exchange experience in applying international law in this field and implementing the principle of national sovereignty in cyberspace.
Organised by the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore, SICW is Asia-Pacific's most established cybersecurity event.
With the theme of "Digital Security: A Shared Responsibility", SICW 2022 ramps up the momentum on cyber capacity building and international partnerships amid a landscape fraught with increasingly sophisticated cyber threats, and explores strategies to navigate volatile power relations between state and non-state actors.
