Today, Hong Kong’s Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) announced its plans to launch an initiative to:
(a) establish a Pilot Partnership Programme for Cyber Security Information Sharing through a Coordinating Party responsible for engaging and promoting the stakeholders to collaborate in sharing cyber security information such as cyber threat intelligence, risk and vulnerability, mitigation measures and best practices, etc. among organisations, businesses, academia and individuals; and
(b) develop and implement a community-based members-driven Cyber Threat Information Sharing Platform that would facilitate effective and efficient information flow across public and private sectors, and in the community
The objective of the initiative is to foster a collaborative culture of sharing cybersecurity information early with peers; helping each other when in need; and jointly guard against massive cyber attacks with a view to enhancing the overall cyber resilience of Hong Kong.
