Microsoft asks all Asian Nations to collectively fight Cyber Threats


Microsoft is urging all APAC nations to collectively fight cyber threats in the region. And to support this objective, the Windows OS software maker has launched an Asia Pacific Public Sector Cyber Security Executive Council(CSEC) constituting 15 policymakers to help APAC nations in sharing threat intelligence, technology, and resources promptly.


Singapore, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, and Thailand have expressed their pleasure in joining the Asia Pacific CSEC that aims to build a strong communication channel between nations for addressing cyber threats among participating countries.


The Satya Nadella led company’s perspective is to bring together policymakers from all sectors such as Technology, government, and state agencies and build a threat-sharing intelligence that enables the nations to be fully prepared for attacks on any range and sort.


Cybersecurity Insiders has learned that the council will be arranging a meeting on a quarterly to discuss any modalities while sharing information related to cyber threats. Such activities will see that there is a cut down in criminal activities that are rising exponentially with the proliferation of data from digital devices.


Redmond giant expects to strengthen the cybersecurity partnership with the help of the newly established Asia Pacific Public Sector Cyber Security Executive Council that will be further assisted by Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, and the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise.


Note- After the Exchange Server Hack, Microsoft is trying hard to serve its customers with the best products and services that are backed by utmost security. But the reality is that any technology when fallen into wrong hands can lead to disasters and so the crux is that it all depends on the brain that is using it….isn’t it?
