ASEAN Needs The Cyber Intelligence Asia 2014

ASEAN countries include Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. These countries (and many others in ASEAN’s different sub-forums) are currently experiencing the turbulence that can be expected when developments in information technology are moving on from infancy into maturity.

As Asia continues to develop rapidly, the ASEAN countries are trying to take an offensive against cyber crime so that the prospects of growth and development are not jeopardized. The Cyber Intelligence Asia 2014 conference represents a chance for the ASEAN countries to come together in the fight against the exploitation of developments in technology.

The 3 day schedule of events is pretty neat:
