The digital economy in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has the potential to add $1 trillion to GDP over the next 10 years.
However, cyber risk could impede trust and resilience in the digital economy. ASEAN countries have already been used as launchpads for attacks either as vulnerable hotbeads of unsecured infrastructure or well-connected hubs to initiate attacks.

Asean countries are being used as launchpads for cyberattacks – either as vulnerable hotbeds of unsecured infrastructure where numerous computers can be infected easily for large-scale attacks or as hub for a single point of attack to gain access to the hub’s global connections.
Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam are global hotspots for major blocked suspicious Web activities-up to 3.5 times the standard ratio, indicating that these countries are being used to launch malware attacks.
In our country, there are still many weaknesses in information security, including lack of awareness and action plans at leadership levels, lack of policies to promote human resource development and nurture talent in information security, and a lack of cohesiveness amongst information security stakeholders in general
Asean National Cert
Even with a comprehensive cyber security strategy and budget, security leadersare likely to face a shortage of skilled and qualified cybersecurity professionals to implement their cybersecurity agenda.Challenges exist in both capacity and capabilities.
In Asean, Malaysia currently has 6,000 cybersecurity professionals but requires 10,000 by 2020.
