India-ASEAN track 1.5 dialogue on cyber issues

India-ASEAN track 1.5 dialogue on cyber issues

The past decade has witnessed the rapidly increasing ‘cyberisation’ of economic, social, and political relations, resulting in complex challenges as well as opportunities for the world. In this context, India and countries that are part of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) share common interests in leveraging digital technologies for development, governance, national security objectives, and scripting equitable rules and norms for cyberspace.

To discuss new pathways of collaboration between India and ASEAN in the digital realm, Observer Research Foundation, in partnership with the Ministry of External Affairs of India (MEA), hosted the India-ASEAN Track 1.5 on Cyber Issues on 14 October 2019.

The Dialogue addressed issues under three pillars:

1. Data Governance: Models, Goals and Possibilities
2. Taking Stock of Cyber (In)security in Asia
3. Cyber Norms Processes: The Way Forward

Over the course of the one-day event, nearly 40 participants representing government, think tanks, start-ups, and industry experts from India and ASEAN delved into trends, state of play, and potential next steps under the three pillars.
