Taiwan-U.K. Collaborate to Strengthen Digital Resilience:

The potential for nations to jointly combat cyber threats, fortify cybersecurity infrastructure, and protect vital digital systems, assuring stability and security in the digital sphere, makes cooperation on digital resilience essential. With this, a deeper Taiwan-U.K. tie and collaboration on digital resilience were recommended by Taiwan’s Minister for Digital Affairs Audrey Tang and former British Prime Minister Liz Truss.

Information security is a major concern on a global scale, according to Minister Audrey. Authoritarian regimes are using emerging technologies to consolidate their power, manipulate the internet to control digital communities, and create deep fake audio and images.

She continued by saying that data security is a matter of national security. To coordinate the government’s comprehensive information security initiatives and associated resources, the moda has been given this mandate.

The main plan of action focuses on proactive defence and the application of cutting-edge technologies to stop threats and obstruct attack sources. Such a strategy entails adopting the Interplanetary File System (IPFS), implementing a zero-trust architecture, and boosting capabilities in crucial areas like infrastructure information security.

By implementing these steps, Taiwan’s total information security environment is anticipated to be fundamentally improved, and a cross-domain defence system that is simple to defend and challenging to attack will be built.

A proof of concept for non-synchronous orbiting satellites as an emergency backup network can be found in The Planning of Strengthening the Digital Resilience of Communication Networks by Applying Emerging Technologies in Emergency or Wartime by the moda.

The project will ensure that command and control operations always continue without interruption by installing 700 domestic and three international satellite hot spots. The project is open to all satellite operators worldwide, including those operating in the United Kingdom, to expand prospective partnerships for satellite communication services.

Nations may improve their capacity to identify, prevent, and respond to cyberattacks, safeguard sensitive data, and promote a resilient digital ecosystem that supports innovation and economic growth by exchanging knowledge, resources, and best practices. In an interconnected world where digital vulnerabilities pose serious threats to public safety, national security, and the running of key services, such cooperation is crucial.

Additionally, Taiwan and the U.K. are attempting to increase trade in a variety of traditional and digital economy sectors.  It is envisaged that this partnership would strengthen ties and open new possibilities for productive cooperation. Minister Audrey noted that Taiwan and the U.K. are both citizens of the free world united by a shared devotion to liberty, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law.

Additionally, the Taiwan-France digital resilience exchange, according to a previous report from OpenGov Asia, is crucial for boosting cybersecurity and digital security, encouraging the exchange of best practices, highlighting the value of digital literacy and co-creation, and boosting Taiwan’s international recognition and participation.

In light of this, a French delegation and Minister Audrey, Taiwan’s minister for digital affairs, recently met to talk about boosting digital resilience. The Minister responded by presenting Taiwan’s “Shared by All, Cash for Everyone” strategy in answer to the French side’s worries about digital governance. Online registration for all services, including terminals at ATMs and post offices, is made possible by this policy.

Minister Audrey noted that Taiwan is putting up a legal framework to promote “Data Altruism,” which encourages all sectors to share non-personal data for the public good, in accordance with the Data Governance Act (DGA) of the European Union. The goal is to increase the social resilience of the democratic alliance.
