Bengaluru, NFAPost: The India-Taiwan bilateral relation has been ever-expanding in recent times with the collaboration including the Cyber Security arena. In this background, Taipei Economic and Cultural Center in India Science, and Technology Director Prof. Chin Tsan Wang focused on establishing a win-win solution for both the countries through promotion and cooperation on the regional platform, be it South Asian or Indo-Pacific partnerships.
Participating in a session on ‘Cyber Security and Related Research Applications’ at the ‘Bengaluru Tech Summit 2021’, on the second day of the summit, Prof. Chin Tsan Wang mentions that the Government of Taiwan, like that of India, has started various initiatives to revive the economy post-Covid crisis, of which developments in science and technology are inevitable.
“The world is changing in the AI age, so setting a safe cyber security is necessary”, further expressing Taiwan’s interest in collaborating with India to increase respective research applications in the field of cyber security. Partnering with Taiwanese companies is an easy way to build up cyber-infrastructure effectively, by setting up research organisations, training centers, and innovation hubs in India and Taiwan,” Taipei Economic and Cultural Center in India Science, and Technology Director Prof. Chin Tsan Wang.
Dr. Yi-Lang Tsai, Research Fellow & Division Director, National Center for High-Performance Computing, National Applied Research Laboratories, discussed the cyber range designs for the defense of national critical infrastructure. The major aspects to broaden cyber security supporting issues were two, namely platform and testbed enhancements, and data understanding and improvement, he opined.
Listing the initiatives of Taiwan, Dr. Tsai mentioned their country’s Security Operation Center that primarily carries out research on cyber security and provides related services, and Science Park- Information Sharing and Analysis Center (SP-ISAC) has been established for increased cooperation among Taiwan science parks.
He explained about the large-scale threat detection system like Hybrid Intrusion Detection System, which uses distributed Honeynet system for sensor deployment and data collection, provides threat intelligence and establishes malware knowledge base. He added that Taiwan’s high-performance computing platform takes about 90 secs to be set up, making their security information techniques of top notch.
The session pressed on conducting Cyber Defence Exercises (CDX) and improving hands-on training and challenge platforms for students which would be useful for human skill development in the field./eom
