Cybersecurity is a major focus area for governments worldwide. In the wake of new and enhanced legislation and policies to mitigate cyber risk, compliance in this regard is high on the agenda for many companies.

In this series, ILO caught up with some of our leading specialists around the world to discuss the key cybersecurity issues that affected their jurisdiction in 2019 and what to expect in 2020. 

The Cybersecurity Act came into effect in Taiwan in 2019 and introduced new compliance requirements for reporting cybersecurity incidents that affect the telecoms, banking and transport industries in particular. In addition, Taiwan has just finished the first stage of the 5G spectrum option and the security by design of the network will be further developed in 2020.

In the below video, Arthur Shay discusses the implications of the Cybersecurity Act for businesses as well as 5G network security developments.
