President Tsai attends Cybersec 2024


Cybersecurity has become an increasingly important topic around the world, and the matter has been a key policy for the Tsai administration over the past eight years. On Tuesday, President Tsai Ing-wen headed to Cybersec 2024, where she discussed the government’s goal of boosting the industry’s output to NT$80 billion in 2025. She voiced hope of further cooperation between industry and government to increase Taiwan’s digital resilience.

For the sixth year in a row, President Tsai Ing-wen attended the tech safety event Cybersec, reflecting the government’s commitment to cybersecurity.

Tsai Ing-wen
Amid the expansion of regional authoritarianism, and the complexity and ever-changing nature of cyber security threats, we must establish defense mechanisms to protect our cyber and national security. Together, we are promoting the six core strategic industries and fully supporting the development of Taiwan’s cybersecurity sector.

Sandra Oudkirk
AIT director
Critical infrastructure and prominent companies in both the United States and Taiwan have been and continue to be the targets of cyber hacks.

American Institute in Taiwan Director Sandra Oudkirk called for U.S.-Taiwan cooperation in forming supply chains. Industry representatives thanked the government for the support provided. Besides offering assistance to the six core strategic industries, the National Development Fund has also assisted startups. Over the past decade, the number of participants at Cybersec has increased 20-fold.

Merton Wu
Cybersec chair
The massive support that the Tsai administration has given to Taiwan’s cybersecurity industry over the past eight years is unprecedented.

As industry goes digital, cybersecurity has become an increasingly important issue. Some cybersecurity firms have developed integrated monitoring platforms for monitoring security. Others have focused on protecting manufacturing to prevent attacks on equipment that could cause financial losses.

Huang Chia-pao
Trend Micro
Starting this year, a lot of listed companies have announced important news, saying they experienced major cybersecurity incidents. Thanks to AI, the staff involved can quickly get started to find the right place to start addressing the problems.

For 97% of companies, if the IT network gets attacked by hackers, the factory side will be affected by the attack. They use ransomware to seize the equipment at the factory, rendering it completely immobile.

Last year, the output value of the cybersecurity industry was NT$77.4 billion. The goal is for the industry to hit an output of NT$80 billion in 2025, to increase Taiwan’s digital resilience.
