Cyber capacity-building in the Indo-Pacific: a region marked by diversity


The Indo-Pacific is a region marked by great diversity. It hosts some of the world’s most advanced cyber nations and industries and some of the most underdeveloped. This also translates into diverse approaches to cyber security. Whereas some states are preoccupied with countering cyber-enabled transnational crime and terrorism, others are concerned about state-based malicious influence, while some still need high-bandwidth internet connections.These observations can be drawn from the Cyber Maturity in the Asia-Pacific report that ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre has been publishing annually since 2013. This report has grown into a benchmark for governments, civil society and academia in the region.
