About Cybersecurity
Taiwan is both a target and testbed for hackers that is subject to sustained and highly sophisticated cyberattacks originating from the region and elsewhere against public infrastructure, the private sector, academia, the media, and civil society. While many of Taiwan’s most critical industrial secrets escape being hacked or stolen, many vulnerabilities persist in protecting critical infrastructure. As an indication of Taiwan’s cyber-threat environment, Ministry of Digital Affairs, has noted that nearly 50,000 cyber intrusions in public offices were detected in November 2023 alone. As Taiwan amends its Cyber Security Management Act, public and private sector entities are seeking new approaches to protect their critical systems, intellectual property, data, and user privacy. 

This four-part U.S. Department of Commerce series is designed to acquaint all Taiwan entities with enhanced and alternative solutions, including cloud services, to better equip them with the tools they need to protect their infrastructure and data to counter the persistent and increasing cyber-attacks being directed at Taiwan by hackers, cyber criminals, and other actors. U.S. federal government officials and Taiwan authorities will review standards and practices that provide guideposts and a global context for changing cyber systems and behaviors.

If you represent a U.S. company that offers solutions to protect satellite communications, defense technologies, or critical infrastructure, including in the defense, energy, financial services, water, and transportation sectors, and would like to get involved in this market, please read the details of each program below and click the Registration button above to express your interest.

Cybersecurity for Critical Infrastructure
Cybersecurity for Critical Infrastructure

Taiwan’s resilience is so much more than securing its systems, data, and military defense. When power and water supply, telecom and transportation systems are vulnerable to cyber-attacks, the island is not secure. Protecting against unauthorized access, data breaches, ransomware, denial of service, and other cyber-attack methods are crucial to preventing widespread disruption, economic damage, and potential threats to national security. 

The Taiwan authorities recognize the urgency of protecting the island’s critical infrastructure from cyber threat actors. In November 2023, the legislative branch passed a four-year, $41.86 million budget plan to reinforce the island’s digital resilience by helping Taiwan’s public sector entities transition to cloud adoption that would allow the government to maintain essential digital services in an emergency scenario. For the digital resilience plan to be successful, the Taiwan authorities are seeking trusted private sector partners to participate in the rollout of the plan. This presents an enticing opportunity for U.S. cloud service and cybersecurity solutions providers that are pursuing Taiwan as their next market for expansion.   

This seminar will highlight the key features of the Taiwan authorities’ digital resilience plan and address the vulnerabilities associated with the host government’s journey to the cloud. It will feature speakers from the U.S. government including the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) who will present on how organizations can adopt zero trust standards to protect their most valuable digital assets. The audience will be made up of public sector representatives from multiple ministries, and the authorities that regulate the cybersecurity of critical infrastructure.

If you wish to participate in this event as a speaker (in person or online), before June 15, 2024, please use the Registration button on the home page to provide a brief introduction and elaborate on why you believe you are well-suited for this webinar. We welcome proposals that include technical cybersecurity partners for a 20–30-minute presentation. Costs will vary between $2,000 and $2,500 per speaker for large companies and less for smaller.  For those not selected to speak at this event, Commercial Specialist Rita Chen at Rita.Chen@trade.gov will be happy to work with you to prepare for a customized presentation of your products or services, or to facilitate a matchmaking event for your firm to help you explore the market further and/or find representation in Taiwan.

Cybersecurity for Electric Vehicle Infrastructure
Cybersecurity for Electric Vehicle Infrastructure

The high-tech industry sector that powered the global computer, telecom, and semiconductor sectors is reconfiguring itself to supply the global electric vehicle revolution. Taiwan companies that want to participate in that industry must know what is expected to safeguard against potential threats to the intricate digital systems embedded in electric vehicles (EVs). A breach in cybersecurity could compromise the safety and functionality of EVs, posing risks to both drivers and passengers, as well as the companies and suppliers that manufacture EVs. Securing charging stations is also vital to prevent unauthorized access to vehicle systems, protect sensitive user data, and ensure the integrity of the power supply infrastructure, thereby fostering trust in the widespread adoption of electric vehicles.

This seminar will address and share the latest updates to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework Version 2.0, which provides voluntary guidance for managing cybersecurity risks and can be applied in many contexts, including electric vehicles.  This seminar will provide an opportunity for U.S. companies to present their solutions and approaches, including the Cybersecurity Framework. It will also introduce U.S. cybersecurity firms that have solutions to protect Taiwan’s EV infrastructure from malicious cyber-attacks to an audience of public and private sector representatives in Taiwan.
