Taiwanese businesses are not concerned enough about cyber security

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Taiwanese businesses should take cyber security more seriously
because it is a matter of national security, Economic Minister Shen Jong-chin (沈榮津) said Wednesday.
Speaking at the Cyber Security Summit in Taipei, the minister said that first enterprises should focus on improving their information security, and later security could be corporatized, the Central News Agency reported.
Shen said most Taiwanese companies needed to do more about the issue, and he mentioned the example of Japan’s NEC, which had formed a special taskforce to launch cyber attacks against the company’s affiliates, which then showed more concern as a result.
The economics minister called on corporations in Taiwan to train experts in research and development, to integrate knowledge from across various sectors, and then apply it to improve cyber security. [FULL STORY]
