Thailand to Expand Cyber Security Laws

Sep 2022

Thailand´s National Cyber Security Agency (NCSA) plans to expand the enforcement of its standard framework of security requirements from the current 60 organizations of critical information infrastructure (CII) to 120 by the end of 2022, according to NCSA’s deputy secretary general.

This framework includes software and operating systems that public agencies and private companies under seven CII categories must comply with. Moreover, the NCSA will promulgate a further 12 subordinated laws of the Cybersecurity Act by the end of 2022. This move aims to complement Thailand’s cybersecurity ecosystem, which already counts around 30 laws that have been implemented. NCSA hopes that positive enforcement will improve cooperation from related cybersecurity agencies in Thailand.

At the recent Thailand Cybersecurity Excellence Award ceremony for related CII agencies and general organizations, NCSA awarded 34 entities with awards and certificates for cybersecurity. Other important initiatives held in Thailand include the Thailand National Cyber Week and the Cyber Defense Initiative Conference.
