This webinar follows a two-day discussion among regional and international experts on the linkages between cybersecurity, technological vulnerabilities, and security sector governance in Southeast Asia. It will discuss the role of security sector actors in managing the security risks posed by international technological advances. The public event is organised in cooperation with DCAF's partners in Southeast Asia and brings together experts from both state and non-state institutions.
It aims to draw attention to the region's unique cybersecurity needs and explore how security sector governance and reform (SSG/R) can be used to protect cybersecurity interests.
The panel will feature speakers who will discuss the specific cybersecurity challenges in Southeast Asia, the role of security sector actors in protecting regional and national cybersecurity, the potential benefits of effective cybersecurity governance, and the essential reforms needed to enable security institutions to fulfil their protective responsibilities. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with the panelists, ask questions and actively engage in thought-provoking discussions on the topic.
